Compost Benefits

Compost application is generally recognized to have these soil health and plant growth benefits:

  • Improves soil structure and porosity – creating a better plant root environment;
  • Increases moisture infiltration and permeability, and reduces bulk density of heavy soils – improving moisture infiltration rates and reducing erosion and runoff;
  • Improves the moisture holding capacity of light soils – reducing water loss and nutrient leaching, and improving moisture retention;
  • Improves the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of soils;
  • Supplies organic matter;
  • Aids the proliferation of soil microorganisms;
  • Encourages vigorous root growth;
  • Allows plants to more effectively utilize nutrients, while reducing nutrient loss by leaching;
  • Enables soils to retain nutrients longer;
  • Contains humus – assisting in soil aggregation and making nutrients more available for plant uptake;
  • Buffers soil pH.
