WHAT IS LAS-1 ACTIVATED PURE ORGANIC COMPOST?
LAS-1 Activated Pure Organic Compost is made from decomposed agricultural by-products which include manure from pig, chicken, carabao, and cow, as well as weeds, grasses, foliage, coco peat, carbonized rice hull, and other crop residues. The decomposition process is further enhanced by the addition of our LactoBac LAS-1 Serum.
This pure organic compost contains essential macronutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, as well as micronutrients including calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and manganese.
WHY SHOULD I USE LAS-1 ACTIVATED PURE ORGANIC COMPOST?
One of the biggest problems facing the agriculture sector is the excessive use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Unknown to most farmers, these substances, though very effective in killing unwanted pests, also eradicate the beneficial and useful organisms thus destroying the normal soil milieu. Not to mention that chemical fertilizers are very expensive
The application of organic compost rejuvenates depleted soils and sustains soil fertility levels thus allowing proliferation of beneficial microorganisms, most especially the nitrogen-fixing bacteria, which is responsible for trapping the nitrogen to the root system of the plant. The microenvironment of the soil is maintained and this enhances the plants ability to properly assimilate nutrients.
It also provides proper nourishment making the plants healthier and more resistant to pests, diseases, as well as environmental stresses.
The use of compost fertilizers is a project which pays off only in the long term. We recommend that initial application of LAS-1 Activated Pure Organic Compost should be accompanied by reduced amounts of chemical fertilizers at a ratio of 1 is to 1 in order to sustain yield. Continuous use of this mixture would result in the accumulation of reserve nutrients during the first 2 to 3 years. After this period, 75 to 100% of the chemical fertilizer requirement can then be replaced entirely by organic compost.
The over-all effect is high-yield at low production cost.
Using this technology reduces the agriculture production cost by significantly reducing use of more expensive chemical and inorganic fertilizers while improving the quantity and quality of production resulting to increased profitability.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFICIAL EFFECTS OF LAS-1 ACTIVATED PURE ORGANIC COMPOST?
LAS-1 Activated Pure Organic Compost has physical, chemical, and biological effects:
A. Effects on soil physical properties
Organic composts promote favorable soil properties such as soil aggregation and good soil tilt to increase the efficiency of soil aeration, root penetration, as well as increasing the water-holding capacity.
B. Effects on soil chemical properties
Organic composts supply the essential nutrients needed by plants. They are also helpful in maintaining or increasing the organic matter level in surface soil. They also facilitate formation of organo-metallic complexes, maintain soil pH, and increase the soil cation exchange capacity thus aiding proper assimilation of nutrients.
C. Effects on soil biological properties
Organic composts improve the biological activities in soil by maintaining the microflora thru enhancement of rapid multiplication of beneficial fungi, bacteria, and other helpful organisms.
WHAT IS THE PROPER WAY OF USING LAS-1 ACTIVATED PURE ORGANIC COMPOST?
1. During planting:
For backyard planting, dig a hole wide and deep enough to contain the ball of soil that goes with the planting material. Set aside the top soil to be used to re-fill the hole after planting or transplanting. Mix 2 parts of LAS-1 Activated Pure Organic Compost with 1 part of top soil. Place 3 kilos mixture at the hole. Carefully remove the plant from its container and set it in the hole. Fill the extra spaces with the mixture.
2. Schedule of fertilization:
Fertilization can be done at any time – regardless of the season. We recommend re-fertilization every 6 months at 5 kilos of LAS-1 Activated Pure Organic Compost per tree. Make sure that all 5 kilos of fertilizer are well distributed around the tree.
