What it is:
Pelletized compost derived from leaf and yard waste.
” Easy to apply with a fertilizer spreader.
” Contains little water (10%) vs. regular compost (can be up to 50%).
” Does not contain manure or animal by-products.
Benefits of Compost:
” Increases soil water-holding capacity resulting in increased drought tolerance and increased irrigation efficiency.
” Increases soil nutrient holding capacity, maximizing plant nutrient uptake.
” Acts as a chelator of nutrients holding them in the root zone when otherwise they would be leached from the soil.
” Boosting OM by 1% can increase drought tolerance by 50%.
” Acts as a food source for increased microbial activity.
” High compost solids means lower rate of application vs. other wet compost.
” Granular crumble allows the use of fertilizer spreader and wide application swath vs. a specialized compost drop spreader or
fork and rake.
” Reduced labour, no compost pile in the yard, etc.
” No smell when wet because it does not contain animal by-products or manure.
Where to use Compost:
” To stimulate microbial activity where soil health has been compromised by chemical fertilizer and pesticide usage.
” On sandy and low organic matter soils.
” On heavy soils to promote improved tilth.
” At seeding for improved establishment.
” At soil aeration.
” Anyplace where compost is needed to improve the soil OM status, tilth, water holding capacity and soil quality.
” As an added service to lawn maintenance programs.
” This product should be used as part of a complete fertility program.
” Professional turf, lawns, sports fields, commercial properties: 40 lbs (18 kg) per 1000 ft2 (100 m2) applied twice a year –
spring and fall.
” For best results, apply after aeration or verticutting.
