bio gro certification


Manufactured to the highest standards using green organic garden material inputs and following an accredited production regime to produce premium quality compost. Soils are rejuvenated by the addition of quality organic matter, stimulating growth of beneficial soil microbes, supporting higher crop yields. Our experience with orchardists, particularly kiwifruit growers in the Bay of Plenty is that the application of our premium quality compost delivers many benefits and is a key ingredient in restoring and maintaining soil balance.


  • Nature’s slow release fertiliser: all nutrients in compost are in a plant available form
  • The natural way of replenishing soil nutrients and organic material that has been depleted after continuous cropping
  • Stimulates the growth of beneficial micro-organisms that re-inoculate the soil and improves disease suppression, plant health and vigour
  • Improves the soil’s water holding capacity
  • Breaks down heavy soils thus allowing better root penetration
  • Reduces leaching of nutrients and binds them to the soil where the plant can use them
  • Buffering of extremes in soil temperature
  • Stabilises soil pH
