Dr. Earth Compost Starter produces remarkable results because it significantly speeds up the decomposition of raw organic materials to create true organic humus. ProBiotic® ensures organic nutrients are thoroughly broken down then released in the compost pile for preparation of soil applications.

  • Infused with ProBiotic®—consisting of “Seven Champion Strains” of beneficial soil microbes to ensure that all materials are digested to the fullest.
  • Ingredients: alfalfa meal, seaweed extract and beneficial soil microbes
  • Ideal for all types of composting strategies; piles, bins, barrels and every other method employed.
  • Use 1/2 to 1 cup on top of the green layer in the compost pile.

To build a compost pile (3'x3'x3') start by putting a thick layer of course carbonaceous material (straw, leaves, or wood material). Then layer nitrogenous material on top of the brown (kitchen scraps, grass clippings, or fresh green material). This is the green layer. Next add the compost starter and continue building the pile. Alternate the brown and green layers.

Great product

We used this to start our 2nd compost bin. It worked great and got things started faster than the first one.
