Purple Cow Activated

OMRI listed ofr Organic Use

Purple Cow Activated takes traditional compost a step further. High quality compost typically undergoes a heating and cooling cycle in which microbial life flourishes. We've introduced a Secondary Activation Phase in which organically-approved ingredients are added to the curing stage resulting in unique bio-catalytic effect. Nutrients are metabolized by microbial life in the compost and are more readily available to your plants. Purple Cow Activated introduces humus - assisting in soil aggregation, making nutrients more available for plant uptake.
