Compost, whether it is made conventionally or through the action of composting worms is partially decomposed organic matter.
It is an organic fertiliser and soil conditioner in one. Mature, well made compost should have a pleasant, earthy smell, and be dark brown and friable in appearance. Rich in humus, it improves the structure and moisture holding capacity of all soils and prevents erosion. It’s nutrients support living soil organisms that are vital to soil health.
Our wonderful Zambian climate and year round growing season means that organic material is used up very fast. To maintain fertility and health, our soils need to be replenished regularly with a good quality, mature compost.
By using Ecobiz compost products as recommended, you will soon notice not only healthier, greener growth, but in time the need for less water, as well as reduced dependence on pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
Best of all – with continued use of our composts and castings, combined with good practice, the indigenous earthworm will thrive and perpetuate what you have started by, aerating and fertilising your soils, asking for nothing in return but the right environment to do so. Having earthworms in your soils is a really good sign that you have healthy soil.
