Thatch Control & Composter

Chandler Residue Digester is a liquid biological product designed to be sprayed on post-harvest residue. It stimulates the growth of soil microorganisms that break down organic plant residue compounds such as cellulose, lignin, sugars, starches and proteins. This natural process of organic decay returns the nutrients back to the soil in forms that plants can use.
