COMPOST SPREADING AT CREETING ST MARY
August 8, 2017
Here at Creeting, we have several farmers within the area who regularly use our Farm Grade 0-40mm Compost for spreading on their fields.
Once harvesting has taken place, the spreading of compost can commence. This is done over stubble and then cultivated in as soon as possible. Organic matter is essential for soil structure, water holding properties and soil health. The benefits of compost include;
- reduced need for inorganic fertilizers
- reduced nutrient leaching
- increased yielding potential
- better soil structure leading to
- greater workability of soil and
- increased traffic tolerance
- improved water holding in light soils
- reduced erosion risk
- beneficial soil microorganisms aid
- soil aggregation
- nutrient recycling
- plant disease suppression
One of the local farmers, Mr Forrest, has recently begun spreading of our compost and we were pleased to see this first hand. We’ve also been talking with Farm Foreman, Mr Rob Hales, about the benefits and application rates.
We’ve been using Material Change’s compost for many years. It is proving to be invaluable with increased yields, year after year. We use it on approximately 300 hectares at a rate of up to 40 tonnes per hectare. Over the course of a year, we use 1000’s of tonnes of compost which has increased the health of our soil, producing great results with crops. – Rob Hales.
