Features of Compost

  • Improves the soil structure, porosity, and bulk density (particularly in light textured soils) - creating a better plant root environment.
  • Increases moisture infiltration and permeability of heavy soils - improving drainage and reducing erosion and run-off
  • Improves moisture holding capacity of light soils - reducing water loss and nutrient leaching
  • Improves and stabilises soil pH
  • Improves cation exchange capacity (CEC) of soils - improving their ability to hold nutrients for plant use.
  • Supplies beneficial micro-organisms to the soil - improving nutrient uptake and suppressing certain soil-borne diseases.
  • Supplies a variety of macro and micro nutrients - nourishes the soil for improved plant development
  • Slow-releasing fertilising effect ensures soil is nourished over a long period
  • Reduces the need for artificial fertilisers, thereby dispensing with unpleasant chemicals
  • Binds and degrades specific pollutants. - see Applications: Soil remediation.
