Improve the health of your soil while feeding plants sustainably
AJK Contracting provides a sustainable solution for local government, businesses, and the public in the management of organic wastes and compost products. We are driven by the prospect of offering a more environmentally friendly fertilizer to the agricultural and horticultural sectors in the Mackay, Isaac, Whitsunday region and beyond, in a bid to reduce the impacts of fertilizer run off. We also aim to improve our region’s soil quality for generations to come through our quality compost product – AJK HumiSoil®.
What is AJK HumiSoil®?
AJK HumiSoil® is made from 100% organic materials and it is a soil amendment product suitable for agricultural, horticultural and land rehabilitation applications. As opposed to traditional fertilizers, HumiSoil® improves the health of soil and has high water retention capability. It’s currently the only HumiSoil® product in Queensland to meet an unrestricted use classification containing biosolids – collected daily from the water and waste treatment plants right here in Mackay.
Once the bio-solids are collected, they are mixed with other organic materials such as green waste and wood waste, which is then inoculated with a biological accelerant that stimulates the composting process. Each batch is tarped and monitored for 26 weeks to allow the bugs to do their work.
