Compute Compost Balance





ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7016 is a unique product offering the synergy of eight endo-spore-forming, gram-positive Bacillus strains (which rapidly activate to produce large quantities of protease, esterase, lipase, amylase, xylanase, urease and cellulase enzymes supported by raw cellulase and xylanase enzymes and micro-nutrients, to provide a safe, natural way to accelerate the biodegradation of lawn waste and garden organics (grass clippings, leaves, etc.) in homeowner's gardens. When used as directed in composting, ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7016 will provide high yields of natural humus within 30 to 60 days, which may be used to stimulate plant growth, improve plant health, color, stability and resistance to disease. The endo-spore forming bacterial strains in ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7016 can survive, dormant, in the compost through hot, dry weather and over the winter; reactivating whenever conditions moderate, allowing the process to continue with minimal supplemental dosages.
