From our experience working with kiwifruit and avocado orchardists (predominantly Bay of Plenty based), they derive the benefits of annual applications of compost or one of our compost blends. Applications generally go on in early to late Spring once soil recommendations have been received by orchardists. Autumn applications of compost or compost plus vermicast can be beneficial for avocado orchards to support and encourage fungal development around tree root systems. Revital recommends applying compost annually for at least 3 years to reap the full benefits.
Applications of Revital products on orchards are recommended at minimum 4,000
kg/ha up to 10,000 kg/ha
