Benefits of Compost


Promotes Soil Health

Compost supplies organic matter to soil, which attracts earthworms and stimulates beneficial soil microorganisms. Compost also performs the the following:

Increases soil water holding capacityIncreases soil nutrient retentionImproves soil tilth and friability

Improves soil drainageLoosens heavy clay soils

Suppresses soil-borne plant pathogens (diseases)

Plant Nutrients

Although compost is not a fertilizer, it does contain many trace nutrients that are essential for plant growth. Nitrogen and phosphorus, mostly in organic forms, are released slowly to plants and not readily leached from the topsoil.
