Compost in Agriculture
NWP supplies high quality organic compost to agricultural customers across the island. Produced from incoming organic materials, it can be used on grass land, arable crops and for land reclamation.
Compost is a natural, safe and environmentally friendly alternative to chemical and synthetic fertilisers, helping to restore organic matter to soils and increasing its vitality over time. NWP’s agri customers see organic compost as an essential part of long-term soil health management. Its slow-release of vital nutrients gives root systems a steadier uptake to build strong stems that allow for maximum support of resulting crop. This helps farmers harvest maximum yields as if nutrient uptake is too rapid, stem systems do not support the resultant growth meaning a loss of yield come harvest time. Moisture retention, greater workability and increased organic matter content are all very welcome additional benefits.
