Cowsmo Green Attributes
A study of kitchen wastes that are composted compared to just throwing it in the trash saved about 2/3 ton of carbon gas emissions per ton of waste.
Cowsmo compost includes sawdust that is a waste product of the furniture and construction industries. It is used for bedding for animals and then when soiled it is composted. The composting process results in a product that helps plants grow.
Manure is great for the soil. Manure does however have an odor. It contains weed seeds. It can be source of pollution if handled or stored incorrectly. The process to make Cowsmo compost requires all runoff to be either irrigated on cropland or run through a filter strip of various grasses. The composting process kills weeds seeds, eliminates objectionable odors, and concentrates nutrients so there is less transportation costs to move it. The final product, Cowsmo Compost is a stable amendment that can be applied to soils with little fear of runoff.
The term organic can mean many things but the standard accepted meaning with food means the product meets the National Organic Practices standards adopted by USDA or NOP. Cowsmo Compost is considered a product that meets criteria for organic production. Thus it is incorrect to claim it is in itself organic. That term is used for the food we eat.
Compost vs fertilizer
Fertilizer is a product that has been approved by a government agency to provide nutrients to plants as stated on the label. Cowsmo Compost is a soil amendment that makes no nutrient claims and has not been licensed by a governing body. This is because composts vary by sources. Cowsmo brand ensures that the compost you buy will be of the highest quality and it will be uniform year after year.
