Clean Green Organic Compost | Soils Plus Soils &

If you have sandy soil, use Clean Green as a conditioner by mixing in up to 50% of the tilled depth. This method will provide high humus content that will provide increase the water holding capabilities of your soil. If you have clay soil, follow the same method. Clean Green's high humus content will increase aeration and drainage for clay soils.

The effects of organic fertilizers and aggregate size on SOM content interacted, suggesting that organic fertilizers might influence SOM by mediating soil aggregation. Indeed, the application of pig manure simultaneously increased the mass proportion of macroaggregates and the SOM content, compared with NPK (Fig. 1 and Table 1) (He et al., 2015)....

Organic Content

It is important to measure the organic content of aggregate as it can affect its stiffness (Arm, 2003). The organic content of RA has been determined using three test methods, namely ASTM D2974 (2014) for loss of mass at 440°C, Vegas et al. (2011) for loss on calcination at 500°C and UNE 103204 (1993) for
