DiataGrow Silica Bulk Compost
DIATAGROW SILICA BULK COMPOST is a low risk, consistently high-quality soil conditioners derived from raw materials such as mulch and high protein gelatine (used in food, complimentary medicines and sports supplements) processing by products. Consistency of ingredients and a full composting process enable an ongoing supply of reliable low risk product.
DiataGrow Silica Bulk Compost boosts soil health as an excellent source of carbon, beneficial microbiology and increased nutrient availability. Increased soil health enables more robust, vigorous plant growth with larger roots systems better able to harvest moisture and thicker leaves for improved water efficiency. Increased soil carbon enables plant and microbiology growth, while improved soil texture promotes drainage and water permeation. Beneficial microbiology helps plants absorb more nutrients from the soil and resist pathogen infestation.
Improved soil chemistry increases the soils ability to retain nutrients while the contribution of immediate and slow-release nutrients delivers ongoing sustenance. The net result is plants with increased environmental resilience, yields, produce quality, moisture retention better able to withstand the challenges faced by Australian farmers.
Enhanced Soil Carbon
DiataGrow Silica Bulk Compost is an excellent source of soil organic carbon – the basis of soil fertility. Soil carbon enables plant and microbiological growth, improves soil structure and buffers against harmful substances.
Enhanced Soil Microbiology
DiataGrow Silica Bulk Compost delivers a broad spectrum of microbiology gained through clean raw material inputs, while the 20 – 30 week composting process facilitates the growth of beneficial microbes. Beneficial soil microbes work in partnership with plant roots to maximise nutrient uptake, assist in pathogen suppression while facilitating ongoing nutrient supply from the soil.
Enhanced Nutrient Availability (Cation Exchange Capacity – CEC)
An elevated CEC allows the soil to hold increased levels of nutrients, increasing fertiliser efficiency while buffering acidification. Immediate and slow-release nutrients provide continuity for ongoing plant sustenance. CEC is a useful indicator of soil fertility because it shows the soil’s ability to supply three essential plant nutrients: calcium, magnesium and potassium.
DiataGrow Silica Bulk Compost increases soil structure for improved water penetration and absorption to maximise every rain event and irrigation. Increased carbon buffers against salinity and the impact of heavy metals. Healthier plants with deeper, stronger root systems maximise moisture absorption. At the same time, thicker leaves reduce moisture loss to counter dry spells, while vigorous plants are more resistant to pathogen and pest infestation.
