“The benefits of compost’s biological activity should never be underestimated.”

Atlas Organics compost is biologically active and supplies micro and macro nutrients to the soil environment while supporting the microorganisms with a carbon source for healthy growth and root support. These microbes work with plant roots to allow for a more efficient uptake of nutrients and moisture. Atlas Organics sends compost samples to a third party lab to test every quarter to ensure maximum quality control.

compost benefits

  1. Improves soil structure and porosity - creates better plant root environment

  2. Increases moisture infiltration and permeability and reduces the bulk density of heavy soils - improving moisture infiltration rates and reducing erosion and runoff

  3. Improves the moisture holding capacity of light soils - reducing water loss and nutrient leaching and improving moisture retention

  4. Improves CEC of soils

  5. Supplies organic matter

  6. Aids proliferation of soil microbes

  7. Supplies beneficial microorganisms to soils and growing media

  8. Encourages vigorous root growth

  9. Allows plants to more effectively utilize nutrients while reducing nutrient loss by leaching

  10. Enables soils to retain nutrients longer

  11. Contains humus - helps in soil aggregation and makes nutrients more available for plant uptake

  12. Buffers soil pH

  13. Supplies macro and micro nutrients

  14. May suppress soil borne disease

  15. Can bind and degrade certain pollutants
