Compost Information

 

Soils in Australia typically have organic matter levels of 1 -5%, much lower than elsewhere in the world where up to three times as much organic matter may be present. Further decreases in soil organic matter occur through cultivation, harvesting and erosion. Building and retaining soil organic matter is crucial for nutrient cycling and improving long term fertility of soil.

 

There are many benefits of adding organic matter to soil including:

 

  • Increase water holding in sandy soils
  • Break down clay soils
  • Provide slow releasing organic nutrients
  • Provide soil micro-organisms beneficial to plant growth and soil health
  • Retain fertiliser in the soil
  • Reduce the watering requirement of gardens

 

Soilco has created a range of Garden Organic (GO) products which can be incorporated into existing soil as soil improvers, protecting the soil as a mulch, or blended with other materials to create growing media.

 
Products in the GO Range include:

 

  • GO Compost – Compost Only.
  • GO Mix & Feed – compost and Manure.
  • GO Mulch – compost and Mulch.
