Rebuild your soil health
Here in New Zealand, we’ve been farming for generations. And we need more from our soils than ever before. Composting is one of the best ways to rebuild soil health. It's also the best way to sustain and enhance soils for future generations.
Here are the benefits of a commercial compost application to rebuild your soil health.
Enhanced crop quality for taste, size and nutritional value
Improved soil fertility by adding essential nutrients and organic matter
Promote crop health with reduced plant diseases and pests
Improve soil moisture and water retention to plants
Natural alternatives to fertilisers and harmful chemicals for suppressing weeds
Compost is a natural product that supports the microbiology in the soil. The benefits of compost application go well beyond the nutrient value. It improves soil structure and function, leading to better plant health and performance.
