Sea grass constitutes 80% of raw materias used

High content in nutrients and increased stimulating properties in plant growth  

 

 Long period treatment in order to reach full maturation
Numerus benefits for the plants:
a.  Non phototoxicity
b.  High concentration of humic and fulvic acids


No burning
The fact that the product comes from the open windrow composting process (aerobic fermentation) is demostrated by its dark brown color (instead of carbon- black color which is the result of burning), its characteristic texture and its natural earth odor

Benefits of compost Posidonia

Application rate

Application of POSIDONIA® during planting of young trees or plants and throughout their life-circle, offers a good store of organic matter and contributes to their well-balanced growth because its properties act accumulatively


 

Pot- plants & containers

Pot-plants and containers:

•When planting new pots mix in an one POSIDONIA® to two or three soil ratio
•On already installed pots add POSIDONIA® as a top dressing (2-4 cm layer) two or three times a year

 

• When planting dig appropriately sized holes and mix in a one POSIDONIA® to two soil ratio

• On already installed trees use at least 20 lt (age up to 10 years) or  40lt (age at least 10 years) POSIDONIA® on the soil under tree’s foliage as mulch or work gently into the surface

 

Trees

Vegetables

 

When planting in a pot or jardinières (tomatoes / cucumbers / peppers)

Agricultural crops

  • Production of edible products:  Every year we apply 1 big bag  of compost Posidonia® for each hectare, over the entire surface or in the  planting lines.

  • Production of non-food products: Every three years, we apply 4 big bags of compost Posidonia® per hectare.

Lawns

Lawns:
 Lawn laying: Gently work POSIDONIA® into the surface (at least 100 lt per 50 m2) when preparing the ground
