Understanding Compost and Fertilizer

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.
