A ready-to-use multi-purpose compost used as a plant growing media for containers, potting on and raised beds. It is also the go-to biochar-compost grade for improving topsoil and converting soil into Terra Preta type soil.
SF40 Multi-Purpose Compost Features
Use as received for planting in raised beds and containers, seedlings and potting on
The biochar-colloidal humus acts as a ‘sponge’ for water and essential nutrients, storing them ready for use. The ‘sponge’ matrix supports increased levels of soil microbes. The microbes (notably mycorrhizal fungi) can access the stored nutrients in the biochar. They form symbiotic relationships with plant roots and supply nutrients to the roots. This mechanism leads to improved plant health and growth. (More detail via our FAQ blog post)
The composition has been carefully formulated to achieve the right balance of properties that support healthy plant growth
Improving your soil is a balance of cost, effort, and the length of time you are willing to wait.
SF40 contains 30% biochar and is ready to use.
Pure ("raw") biochar granules should be "activated" before adding to your soil. Biochar granules remain a robust long-term soil improver. You can make your own version of SF40 by mixing biochar with compost as a method for 'activating' biochar.
SF60 is a great soil improver (especially for sandy, green soils), but it holds too much water to be used on its own as a growing media. SF40 is formulated to be a growing media. As its name implies, it is multi-purpose and is also as good as SF60 for topsoil improvement.
Our SoilFixer tests indicated (and the academic science is now backing up), that biochar works even better when it has been through an active composting process. We make SF60 by adding the biochar humification agent into the compost pile. (We have a European Patent pending for the method).
When adding biochar to soil, gardeners are looking to make super fertile loamy soil - akin to the Amazonian Dark Earth (ADE, or Terra Preta) like fertile quality. This is not achieved just by adding biochar to soil. Soil fertility, tilth, and soil aggregation are functions of humus which is created as a result of microbial and root hair activity. Humus is the sticky, nutrient-holding, water-holding compound that is key to fertility. Our SF60 goes through a special composting process with a humification agent to create a high colloidal humus-biochar compost mix. Adding SF40 or SF60 to your soil is a rapid way to create highly fertile topsoil that works much like ADE/TP.
