This article highlights an exciting pilot project on the financial benefits of carbon sequestration through compost application. The Gold Ridge Resource Conservation District (RCD) conducted the project to explore the potential of compost in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and sequestering carbon from the atmosphere. The results were impressive, demonstrating that compost can significantly reduce the costs of fertilizers and other inputs while improving crop yields. This is great news for farmers and anyone interested in sustainable agriculture practices as it provides a cost-effective solution to address pressing environmental issues. On top of all that, this is yet another source of funding to help you get better crops for less money.
If you want healthy fields and big yields, you need fertilizer, right? Yes, you do, but it’s not as simple as that. Pouring a bag of blue powder on your fields gives the plants the N-P-K they need, but there’s a lot more to happy plants than those three letters. Compost gives your soil structure, sequesters carbon, improves water retention, provides microbial activity, and improves your fields in countless other ways. What makes Cold Creek Compost’s Agrow-Blend compost special is it acts as a fertilizer and a compost at the same time. Our unique manure/compost blend provides fertilizer at less cost than a chemical fertilizer, while boosting your soil in all the ways that compost does.
