If you’re a regular composter, you hardly need to be told the value of good quality compost.
You may not be familiar with the values of compost turners and how they work to deliver better quality compost.
These are the basics:
Compost turners ensure good mixing of nutrients in your compost: The nutrients are released as plant materials break down, and these nutrients are gravity fed to the bottom of the compost unless turned. Compost turners manage composting materials on a large scale to ensure efficient composting.
Compost turners assist the composting processes: Thermal and chemical processes may be biased to upper layers in static compost mixes. The upper layers receive more heat and break down more quickly, which means the lower layers must be lifted to assist them in breaking down. Compost turners provide a simple way of managing the composting process to deliver consistent results.
Turning compost blends the nutrients and fibres: Mixing fibres and nutrients is only part of the story. The compost mix must be homogenised to ensure that you have a good balance of fibre and nutrients. The fibre helps the soil retain nutrients and provides a good layer of structure to your topsoil.
Compost turners improve compost handling: Manually handling compost involves a certain amount of material loss due to offloading and transportation. Compost turners provide a practical, economical way of managing your compost directly from source to distribution with minimal handling and loss.
