What is Compo-Stuff??
Compo-Stuff is a natural carbon based product that results from the controlled aerobic (with oxygen) decomposition of yard debris materials. Compost is not soil; it is a top dressing. If mixed with soil the gardener may need a nitrogen or other nutrients. We suggest the gardener obtain soil testing if they have been gardening in one area for more than 5 seasons. It is not a fertilizer.
What materials or feedstocks are used to make Compo-Stuff?
Compost facilities in Oregon and Washington recycle a variety of green materials. McFarlane’s makes Compo-Stuff with 100% vegetative yard debris.
What about weed seeds, plant diseases or pesticide residues?
The controlled time, aeration and temperature process required by the USCC has been shown to kill weed seeds and plant diseases. That same process breaks down most pesticide residues and makes those chemicals inert.
