Effective Humus

Effective humus consists of plant residues and waste – including undecomposed plant materials and fertilizers – as well as added composts, green manure and dead soil organisms. The substances interact in the soil; a large part decomposes to carbon dioxide, water and plant nutrients in a short time. Effective humus also provides the plant with hormones and antibiotics and stimulates biological activity which inhibits the spread of pathogenic microorganisms.
