WHAT MAKES MELTON FARM COMPOST DIFFERENT?
The base of all our compost is biomass (plant) material which has been well composted and matured using an internationally approved method of Controlled Microbial Composting using the windrow method. It is weed and pathogen free due to the heat generated, which is a natural reaction during the composting process.
We use a percentage of sawdust, animal manure, alien vegetation and a range of plants and grasses to obtain the correct Carbon : Nitrogen Ratio.
This is an important ratio for the composting process to commence in a compost row.
To this we add Effective Micro organisms (EM) which is a blend of beneficial anaerobic microorganisms (already existing in nature) in a carbohydrate-rich liquid carrier.
When the compost is fully matured, the batch is sent to be analysed by Bemlab.
It has an excellent range of Macro and Micro nutrients and can be further customised to suit specific soil requirements.
Screened or unscreened available.
