Edama’s flagship product, desert compost, is an organic soil improver designed by our scientific team to improve the productivity and fertility of sandy desert soils.
In many areas of the world, there is an urgent need to grow more food with less water. Yet water scarcity and poor quality soil continue to be major barriers to successful desert agriculture. Soils low in organic matter content and with poor structure have limited productivity and water efficiency.
Edama’s desert compost product is pioneered to meet the needs of desert agriculture. Its rich supply of organic matter and nutrients improves soil structure and water holding capacity while balancing pH and nurturing beneficial microorganisms -- a combination that maximizes plant performance and reduces irrigation demands.
Desert compost applications
While desert compost is optimized for food production in sandy soils, all soil types can benefit from this high quality product.
Edama’s desert compost is a dark brown, soil substrate with a rich, earthy aroma. We recommend mixing the compost into the upper layer of soil to improve the physical, chemical and biological properties of soil. Edama soil improver is specifically designed to naturally regenerate the soil structure of local arid sandy soils.
