  • Increases moisture infiltration and permeability and reduces bulk density of heavy soils-improving moisture infiltration rate and reducing erosion and runoff

  • Improves the moisture holding capacity of light soils - reducing water loss and nutrient leaching, and improving moisture retention

  • Improves the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of soils and growing media, thus improving their ability to hold nutrients for plant use

  • Supplies significant quantities of organic matter

  • Aids the proliferation of soil microbes

  • Contains humus-assisting in soil aggregation and making nutrients more available for plant uptake

  • Supplies a variety of macro and micronutrients

  • Encourages vigorous root growth

  • Enables soils to retain nutrients longer

  • Improves and stabilizes soil pH


"Compost has not only helped us with our soil, but is also an economical choice for our farm. It is very close in price to commercial fertilizer, but you also get the trace minerals and organic matter benefits that go along with compost. In comparison to manure, compost provides a good weed-free choice product that has helped us build up our soil where needed. Working with Nature's Way has given us an opportunity to diversify our ways of building up soil content at an economical value."
