OrmanicaTM

Premium Plant Compost

OrmanicaTM (1-0.5 -0.5) is an all natural, low odor, non-compacting refined premium plant compost manufactured with a proprietary process that utilizes earthworms, vegetable matter, agricultural grade mulch and beneficial bacteria. This process generates small, uniform, easy-to-apply particles. The small size and large surface area result in rapid particle breakdown and quick release of stored nutrients.

•  More cost effective than peat and richer in nutrients than compost produced by other methods
•  Fully composted, eliminating the need for sterilization. Contains no animal waste
•  Rich in microbial life, which diversifies the soil microbial community
•  Improves and sustains soil physical properties
•  Enhances the availability of plant nutrients – increases CEC
•  Helps maintain soil moisture for improved germination, root initiation, seedling growth and development
•  Provides faster turf establishment and green-up

Renovation of compacted turf in conjunction with aerification for greens and tees, around soccer goalmouths and on sports fields: Add 5% by volume to topdressing sand or broadcast after aerification at the topdressing rate.

Topdressing: Add Ormanica at a rate of 10 - 12 lb. per 1,000 ft2 (435 - 525 lb./acre) in the fall and spring as a top-dressing for golf, sports turf and lawns.

Seeding, re-seeding and over-seeding: Use as a mulch on top of seed. Apply 10 - 25 lb. per 1,000 ft2 (435 - 1,085 lb./acre) over entire area to be seeded.

Divot-mixes, green sand, etc: Blend 50 - 150 lb. of Ormanica with 1 ton of sand.

Organic amendment (alternative to peat) for sand based root zone mixes: Ormanica can meet the USGA guidelines for use as an alternative to peat in golf greens construction. Final blends will depend on a number of factors including the physics of the sand selected, however, previous testing has indicated that a 95:5 blend by volume should provide adequate moisture retention without compromising air porosity and drainage.

To meet USGA guidelines, blend Ormanica with sand at 95:5 to 90:10 ratio of Ormanica:sand for the desired root zone mix.
