Compost is a natural product which increases the humus in the soil. This gives a good base for the active growth of microbes which in turn makes organic nutrients available for plants. This leads to healthy plant growth which is less susceptible to pests and diseases. Compost also helps to retain water.
The compost in which mushrooms are grown is produced scientifically to very exact specifications in order to create a quality organic fertilizer.
