There are many important factors that influence agriculture, none more so than soil health.
Reduced productivity of crops, pastures or permanent plantings can generally be attributed to degraded soil health.
Soil is a complex ecosystem and is naturally home to many species of microbes, fungi and invertebrates such as earthworms, which are critical for a healthy soil.
The addition of compost adds valuable organic matter to the soil. The increase in soil organic matter content also provides a valuable food source for the soil microbes, ensures they can continue to mobilise nutrients to your plants without depleting your existing soil carbon reserves.
Compost provides a comprehensive source of essential macronutrients and micronutrients.
Along with being a source of plant nutrients, compost and humus has a natural liming effect that buffers low pH with complex organic chemical reactions in the soil which help manage acidic soils.
