Farmers Compost is a high energy fermentation, actively processed through biodynamic management into good carbon rich pungent compost / humus.
It goes through anerobic, aerobic and post-fungal stages in the same way as Morpheus, to maximize biological diversity & quantity. While producing a bioavailable ready to go plant food, fertilizer and health tonic. Sometimes it goes through the compost turner, but most of the time we manage it in a larger windrow to keep the cost of production low, and the price for you guys low!
Agroforestry -You can use Farmers Compost as a mulching compost for no-till alley crop systems, and plant straight into it(after mulching and waiting a week), if you have good shade from alley cropped tree systems. Or work it into the ground(preferably) and mulch straight over.
Tree planting - Either work 5cm into the row you are planting, and then top dress the trees with another 2cm before mulching. Or use 20-60 litres per fruit tree, deeply amended through the hole and around the surface of the soil. Mulch over if your soil is bad and wait 2 weeks for the soil to soften up. Can be planted the next day after a deep watering.
Vegetables existing or new gardens- Work up to 10cm deeply through your bed, rake over, mulch straight away and set it all in with a good water, plant next day. If running no-till, then lay 10cm on top, water in and cover with a thin layer of hay for protection.
Existing veg- Top dress 5cm at a time, water in and mulch straight over if possible, if not possible then keep moist for 7 days minimum for biological transfusion to occur.
All other usages / ornamental / native - Suitable for all gardens to use as you would any other compost. Just keep in mind 1. it needs to be watered in & the soil needs to stay moist for as long as possible (7 days minimum) and 2. it needs to be mulched straight away.
PASTURES - 3-6m3 per acre depending on budget and conditions. Ideally pre-grazed application for the cattle to gently disturb it into the tussocks, soil and litter. Or application, with irrigation straight afterwards.
Storage- Any left overs you have from a bulk load, or truck load, the best way to store it, is by making a hay bale house for it. Packing the inside with the compost and wetting down. If that's not an option, just give it a wet down and store it on a tarp in the shady corner of your yard, with a tarp over the top.
