Compost Analysis - your thoughts

Year of
Analysis 2013
pH 7.8
Organic Matter 36%
C:N Ratio 10:1

Total Nutrient Analysis
Nitrogen (N)* Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)
1.9% 0.3% 1.0%

Guys,
Here is an analysis of the compost available at my local county compost site. I located this on the county website and was fairly impressed with the information presented and the extensive process the county takes to create the compost.
I am proposing using this compost in bulk to test the waters in compost topdressing for 2014.

Any thoughts on this analysis?
