A profitable season starts with healthy soil
Conventional growers use McGill AG for only one reason — it works.
Simply put, when farmers return composted organic matter and active soil microbes to fields, good things happen — so good, in fact, that at the end of the season, you’ll return more money to your pocket.
Compost is also good for the environment. It controls erosion and pollutant runoff, conserves energy and returns carbon to the soil instead of allowing it to become air pollution, so you can feel as good about the way you grow food as you do about feeding people and turning a profit.
Try McGill AG on your worst field, and you’ll be convinced.
- See results with as little as 4-8 tons per acre or about a 1/8-inch layer of compost
- Apply with standard spreaders
- Use no more than 30% in blends and mixes — compost is a concentrate
- Base your application rate on soil tests and compost analysis for best results
What else should you know about using McGill AG compost?
Uncontrolled composting can result in excessively-high temperatures which destroy pathogen-suppressing compounds and microbes. McGill’s computer-controlled process eliminates the problem by keeping temperatures within desired ranges, resulting in robust microbial populations to revitalize your soil.
Fumigation can destroy soil microbes, negating much of compost’s benefit. Our growers report equal or improved yields without fumigation when McGill AG is used in conjunction with cover crops and extended rotations.
Those same microbes also suppress some diseases, helping to maximize yield without chemical overload.
The McGill advantage
|Higher yields and quality||Increases nutrient uptake, adds organic matter, and builds soil tilth.|
|Greater disease and pest resistance||Releases antibiotic compounds and proliferates pathogen-suppressing microflora|
|Balanced moisture levels||Holds more water during dry spells and soil drain faster in wet. Can reduce irrigation requirements.|
|Less dependence on chemicals||Increased nutrient uptake means less chemicals are needed.|
|Longevity||The benefits of McGill AG last through multiple seasons.|
McGill AG compost is specifically formulated for cost-effective results in conventional agriculture:
- Topdressing and soil amendment
- Open ground
- Banded row
- Hay and pasture
We recommend McGill SoilBuilder for horse hay/pasture and plasticulture.
