Organic matter—like manure, fruit rinds, old vegetables or wood scraps—is not plant food until it’s passed through the stomach of a microbe. So, the value of raw organic matter applied to your growing area is only determined by the “digestive capacity” of your soil. Most soils have inadequate digestive capacity. A mature, developed soil will have the greatest capacity to digest raw organic material and turn it into plant food, though this is usually a lengthy process. Our Boost humified compost has already passed through the stomachs of infinite microbes and is ready for your plants to feast. Plus, our Boost helps fix your soil, putting more natural microbes into your soil ecosystem, which is highly beneficial to the plants you grow there.
