DairyGrow: Is This an Acceptable Compost to Use in Mel's Mix Empty DairyGrow: Is This an Acceptable Compost to Use in Mel's Mix

Post  tappingmom 2/9/2023, 2:31 pm

Hello!

I'm a newbie and just introduced myself on the Welcome Mat.  OhioGardner has already set me straight on two points...so now I move on to questions regarding the compost component of my Mel's Mix.

I found this (below, in red) produced locally.  Some of the print indicates it's fertilizer, but later it refers to itself as compost.  
Is this compost?  Meaning, can I use this as 1 of my 5 types of compost?

Thank you!
Tammy

Tmom,  I'm a little leery of this product.  If it was properly composted (verses just aged) horse manure with a lot of undigested hay in it, I might considered it a compost.  Maybe the chicken manure/wood shaving compost  you mentioned in your other thread would be better.

I do give kudos to the fact that the cow manure brand did testing for herbicides.  But, I wouldn't use it.

Important:  Limit the amount of manure-based composed plus worm castings (which are nutritious) to no more than 20% of the total compost blend.  Manure (especially poultry) and worm castings are high in phosphorus which can build up in gardens and ag fields.
