NUGGETS OF GOLD FOR GARDENERS
Alpaca manure naturally contains the perfect balance of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and micro-nutrients.
It is lower in organic matter content than the manure from other farmyard livestock (cows, horses, goats and sheep etc) creating a higher concentration of nutrients as well as improving soil texture and its water-holding capacity. This lower organic content allows alpaca manure to be spread directly onto plants without burning them.
Alpaca manure is NOT A HOT MANURE unlike others and therefore does not need to be rotted before use. It is the decomposition of organic matter that indicates the efficiency of the alpacas complex digestive system.
The nitrogen and potassium content of alpaca manure is comparatively high, an indication of good fertilizer value. Alpaca manure has the highest nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium of any natural fertilizer.
Natural alpaca compost may be added to the soil at any time during the year and at any stage of growth and development. The use of alpaca compost as a fertilizer contributes to healthier and stronger development of stems, leaves and seeds in just about any plant and produces beautiful buds and flowers.
There are several ways to use the alpaca manure. You can dig it straight into the soil or you can place some manure into a bucket for a few days, stir occasionally and pour onto the plants or vegetables to see a rapid growth.
