There used to be a company called green valley that made a nice product.
I cant seem to find anyone that makes a pelltized compost, yet all sorts of organic lawn care companies advertise it on their web pages if you do a search.

Anyone have a supplier?

We supply many more products than are on our current website, new one should be up in a couple of weeks.

What kind of info are you looking for? Still working on pricing, but last year it was $650.00/pallet of 50 x 40lb bags delivered to MA, cheaper for orders of 3 or more pallets. We'll have the current price soon.

Knee jerk reaction is OUCH, but can you post specs on the product beyond what you've given so far? Nitrogen is still a prevalent part of the program, what %N? What else is in the compost? Micro's I hope. Fe? Mg? Mo and Zn are left out in a lot of products and essential for some aspects of growth. My biggest complaint w/ synthetics isn't as much salt (even though I fight salt content in everything including H20), but a lack of micro's w/o buying a specific product has always chapped a bit.

As soon as I get all the specs, I'll post them. But I doubt they will be as extensive as what you are asking for.

Generally speaking soils are not limiting with respect to micros ... soil conditions on the other hand may limit availability. In any event, just one more reason to use a well rounded compost in your top dress program.

Still cheeper than fert

By what math did this spill forth? $650/1 ton pallet makes it 32.5cents/# for the product. If it is 10%N, then the cost is 3.25/#N The bio-sludge product out of TX (that I still haven't looked up the right name for yet) that resembles Milorganite is still running $7.50/50#bag. Milorganite can be purchased in palllet quantity for $8.50 a bag. Or 2.50/#N or 2.83/#N respectively. This product may or may not be better or more available. More consistent or better formulated. If FERT is the only criteria, Ammonium sulfate is costing me about $1.50/#N either pelletized for broadcasting or as soluble prills.

I am curious about the product and am not saying good or bad about this product, but a blanket statement about the cost would not be correct with anything else I have seen.

I did the math with my best compost test #s and it did not work out, but pelletized compost thats one for the books........

OK yes its not cheep at first but when you add compost in what ever form you want it will in time need less N from fert.
i use less n each year from regular fert and more from organic forms like compost
nothing is perfict but we all have our own way to get it done

What's the difference between this pelletized "compost" and a granular bio-solid waste stream product? I am NOT pushing Milorganite, it is just the moste available bio-solid I have found so far. If I were near a metro area providing a sewage sludge/bio solid, I would be buying.

On the above note, do any of these facilities provide the product in drop bags? Or could the fill a drop bag for you? "pallet bags" might make this type of product a lot more user friendly for organic LCO's.

I wanted to check out this "Granular Compost" by East Coast Organics. It says approved by the soil food web people.It is 100% organic spreadable. See it at eastcoastorganics.com and hope to hear what you think. I am looking for sources myself.
