Wood Dust is a by-product of pulverizing wood with a saw; it is composed of fine particles of wood. Wood Dust can be used as soil mulch; as soil amendment/conditioner by incorporating into soil; and as a storage media for root crops such as carrot, radish, beet, turnip, ginger, turmeric, colocassia, etc. for increasing their shelf life. It is ideal for mushroom growing as well as for composting.

Mulching with Wood Dust breaks the impact of falling raindrops, reduces soil erosion and crusting, lowers the summer soil temperature, increases penetration of water into the soil, conserves soil moisture and prevents weed growth. All these positive impacts of mulching double the production of vegetables, fruits, flowers and arable crops. We found soil moisture percentage in mulched plots twice as high, summer soil temperature reduction by 8-13oC, and time required for weeding reduced by two-thirds.

Incorporation of Wood Dust into soil improves soil structure and tilth by adding organic matter and forming humus, increases nutrient and water holding capacity of soil and improves water drainage, especially in heavy soils like clay. However, manure/vermicompost should be added to compensate soil nitrogen depletion and to maintain good growth.

 

Greenfield Wood Dust is suitable for vegetables, flowers, fruits, home/kitchen gardens, lawns, trees, shrubs, mushroom growing, composting, as a storage media for root crops, etc.
