  1. Essential ingredients are highly available to the soil in the first year and less prone to leaching
  2. Pathogens and weed seeds in raw manure are eliminated by the thermal and bacterial action of composting
  3. High moisture retention capacity
  4. Moisture retention capacity in the soil is increased
  5. Friendly fungi are stimulated, which are natural enemies of undesirable fungi, nematodes, cut-worms, and aphids
  6. Concrete chunks and other undesired trash in the raw manure are removed
  7. The rank odor of manure is replaced with a pleasing humus smell indicating the presence of healthy, aerobic bacteria
  8. Organic fertilizer is easy to transport, handle, and apply which reduces soil compaction

Our composting process ensures you a fertilizer that is both weed-seed and pathogen free. Valuable nutrients in the soil stripped from chemical fertilizers are replenished, creating better grounds for future generations! Humalfa Organic Fertilizer is by far the least expensive source of phosphorous, potash, humus, and all trace minerals.

The biological properties of compost are not fully appreciated or thoroughly understood today because there hasn’t been enough public research that has seeped into the commercial markets. Consumers who understand the importance of organics are slowly but surely demanding food products that are all natural and grown organically. In the past few years Humalfa has experienced this education curve from the most demanding quality growers who want the added benefit of organics on their fields.

A few of the reasons for this upsurge in organics include: Compost is known to contain naturally occurring fungicides and beneficial organisms that help suppress disease-causing organisms; Compost has been shown to be beneficial by promoting the growth of Mychorrhizal fungi; These fungi are essential for optimum root development and nutrient acquisition; Mychorrhizal fungi are particularly important in establishing vegetative cover on disturbed soils or on soils that have been excessively sterilized to control disease-causing organisms, insects, weeds, and nematodes.
Noble Foundation research in Ardmore, Oklahoma indicates that colonization of Mychorrhizal fungi in the root mass is a crucial requirement for unlocking phosphorous bound in the soil and facilitating acquisition of P by the plant.  (Dr. Maria Harrison, Noble Foundation Soil Scientist, 1999)
