For those who love chicken manure’s high nitrogen content, this is the compost for you. It’s great for vegetables, fruits, and roses. The Real McCoy Organic Compost contains screened green debris, organic horse manure, organic chicken manure, ground grape pomace, rice hulls, oyster shell flour, greensand, soil sulfur, and Azomite™.
You can incorporate this organic compost into your garden with several methods. Use as a top dressing (2-3 inches) for all the advantages a mulch provides, such as more constant soil temperature, increased water retention, weed suppression, and increased organic matter. If you have sandy soil, use The Real McCoy as a conditioner by mixing in up to 50% of the tilled depth. This method will supply the full N-P-K spectrum of nutrients and beneficial organisms while increasing the water holding capabilities of your soil. If you have clay soil, follow the same method. Real McCoy’s rice hulls and high humus content will increase aeration and drainage for clay soils.
