There are a number of benefits to compost that other materials cannot match:
- Compost can hold 2-3 times its weight in water. Its great for retaining moisture.
- Compost contains beneficial microbes that help prevent some diseases and stimulate plant growth
- Compost has both macro and micro nutrients. N-P-K is in there, along with a lot of other trace minerals.
Our compost products are made according to certain production standards. Our compost piles exceed 140F for at least 72 hours straight to kill pathogens and weed seeds. Our regular compost undergoes a 30 day active composting process and minimum of 90 days of curing. Our vermicompost undergoes the standard compost process for at least 21 days and then spends atleast 30 days in our worm bins.
Each batch of our regular compost undergoes a seed germination test before it is released for sale. This ensures that we are only selling a high quality product that is ready for use by our customers. We periodically send out our compost for formal laboratory testing. These results are available upon request.
