Concentrated Compost

Suståne Concentrated Compost for Rebuilding Depleted Soil and Promoting Rapid Plant Establishment in Environmentally Sensitive Areas.

Suståne Concentrated Compost is the most efficient way of transporting and applying high quality compost and organic fertilizer.

Description:

Suståne Concentrated Compost® provides the benefits of a nutrient rich compost in a concentrated dry form. Suståne Concentrated Compost is easy to apply and replenishes the soil with a rich supply of stabilized organic matter and essential nutrients required for quality growth. Suståne Concentrated Compost provides a combination of plant nutrients and organic substances derived from biologically stable aerobic compost.

 

Recommended Use:

For use as a general soil builder, erosion control, reclamation, bio-remediation, revegetation and building or disturbed or depleted soils. Native establishment and soil reclamation and remediation and in the production of certified organic crops.

 
Benefits of Concentrated Compost
  • Provides the benefits of compost in a dry, concentrated form which minimizes transportation and application costs.
  • Contains all primary, secondary and tertiary nutrients for plant growth eliminating the need to apply additional fertilizer.
  • Adds approximately 10% humates by weight.
  • Low Salt Index (6) requires no delay in planting following application.
  • Supplies soil with 60% Organic Matter in the form of stabilized humus.
  • Carbon:Nitrogen Ratio (9:1) ensures no N immobilization in soil.
  • Increases the nutrient and water holding capacity of the soil.
  • Enhances the soil’s ability to suppress plant pathogens.
  • Improves and sustains soil health.
  • Improves buffering against changes in soil pH.
  • Increases the soil’s C.E.C (cation exchange capacity).
  • Improves soil structure, porosity and stability leading to greater root development, infiltration and soil micropores.
Always Safe for Plants, People and the Environment
  • Manufactured by Suståne® in the USA at an EPA-permitted facility.
  • Pathogen and weed/seed free, no blood, bone or meat products.
  • The only organic allowed for export to over 50 countries worldwide.
  • USDA NOP, COR, EU and JAS organic compliant.
  • Aerobic composting eliminates animal and rodent attraction to application site.
  • Suståne will not attract flies or other insects. No blood, bone or meat products.
  • Suståne is fully composted - not sterilized; enhancing the soil environment for beneficial microbial populations.
