  1. We believe that all organic matter should be responsibly composted and placed back into the system, soil microorganisms are responsible for powerful processed including protecting your productive plants from disease, being responsible for soil structure and balancing pH in the root zone. Natural processes support natural nitrogen availability, soil organisms include nitrifying bacteria as well as nitrogen fixing bacteria, these organisms take atmospheric nitrogen and make it plant available so long as we have an intact soil food web and a reasonable level of organic matter. With thousands of tonnes of atmospheric nitrogen sitting above every HA of land, do you ever wonder why we need to buy a few more tonnes?
