    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?

    I just took a look at your page, I dont see it on your site.
    Do you have a link for more info, or pm me.

    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.
