Safety Data Sheet

OVERVIEW

This is where most of the soil’s biological activity takes place and is the most fertile. Peats have accelerated and enhanced this natural process to produce Peats Blend 437. Studies all over the world have shown that crop yield and quality can be improved by increasing humus levels in soil.

Description

Application guidelines:

Application rates can vary from crop to crop and we recommend talking to our experienced staff to determine the right application rate for your needs.The following rates are included as a guide.Viticulture 5-15 tonnes per hectareBroadacre 1-5 tonnes per hectareHorticulture 10-30 tonnes per hectare.Test results on our Blend 437 returned positive comments . . .Total microbial biomass was good. Biomasses of other key desirable microbial groups ranged from good, to fair in the case of Mycorrhizal fungi. VAM fungi require a living plant host to survive, so their presence in this compost is a plus. Protozoa often appear after composts have aged for some time, and their presence here together with the Maturity indicator show that this compost is mature. True anaerobes were elevated, which may indicate lack of aeration. The Fungi to Bacteria ratio was a slightly elevated due to higher fungi comparedto bacteria, but this may be advantageous if the aim was to produce a fungi-dominated compost. Microbial diversity was fair to good. These results indicate that this compost would be a useful amendment, particularly to soils with low fungi.Humic substances enhance the uptake of major plant nutrients and also help plants tap into residual nutrients that are bound up in soils, reducing fertiliser costs.

KEY BENEFITS:

  • water holding capacity
  • microbial activity
  • nutrient uptake
  • cationic exchange capacity.
