Suståne Concentrated Compost 2-3-3 provides the benefits of a biologically stable aerobic compost rich compost in a concentrated, dry form. Concentrated Compost is easy to apply and replenishes the soil with a rich supply of stabilized organic matter and essential nutrients required for quality growth.

Recommended Use:

Suitable for revegetation projects, rapid vegetative establishment, erosion control, wetlands and watershed areas, native plant areas, dune and beach restoration, burn area reestablishment, mine site reclamation, oil/gas/coal right of ways and pipelines, highway roadside establishment, protected natural areas, forests, parks and landscapes.

Benefits of Suståne Concentrated Compost

  • Provides the benefits of compost in a dry, concentrated form which minimizes transportation and application costs.
  • Contains all primary, secondary and tertiary nutrients for plant growth eliminating the need to apply additional fertilizer.
  • Adds approximately 10% humates by weight.
  • Low Salt Index (6) requires no delay in planting following application.
  • Supplies soil with 60% Organic Matter in the form of stabilized humus.
  • Carbon: Nitrogen Ratio (9:1) ensures no N immobilization in soil.
  • Increases the nutrient and water holding capacity of the soil.
  • Enhances the soil’s ability to suppress plant pathogens.
  • Improves and sustains soil health.
  • Improves buffering against changes in soil pH.
  • Increases the soil’s C.E.C (cation exchange capacity).
  • Improves soil structure, porosity, and stability leading to greater root development, infiltration, and soil micropores.

Always Safe for Plants, People, and the Environment

  • Manufactured by Suståne in the USA at an EPA-permitted facility.
  • Pathogen and weed/seed-free, no blood, bone, or meat products.
  • The only organic allowed for export to over 50 countries worldwide.
  • USDA NOP, COR, EU, and JAS organic compliant.
  • Aerobic composting eliminates animal and rodent attraction to the application site.
  • Suståne will not attract flies, pests, or other insects. 
  • Suståne is fully composted - not sterilized; enhancing the soil environment for beneficial microbial populations.

Low Carbon Footprint

  • Made from natural renewable agricultural resources, has a low carbon and greenhouse gasses (GHG) footprint.
  • Suståne complies with regulatory mandate and exceeds most health and safety standards.
  • The Suståne process avoids the generation of more significant greenhouse gasses such as methane and nitrous oxide.
  • With Suståne the energy required to transport is reduce 4:1 per kg. vs. wet compost.
  • Granulation simplifies handling allowing more accurate applications and stays where applied.

Suståne Integrated Soil Management Program:

Land Management, Native Restoration & Erosion Control Programs:


  • For 60 lb. of N per acre apply 3,000 lb.
  • For 80 lb. of N per acre apply 4,000 lb.
  • For 120 lb. of N per acre apply 6,000 lb.

Soil Preparation

  • Light, High Sandy Soil: 136 lb. per 1000 ft2 of bed
  • Medium, Clay Loam Soil: 90 lb. per 1000 ft2 of bed
  • Heavy, Silty, Clay Loam: 68 lb. per 1000 ft2 of bed

(Hydroseeding: Mix with water solution at a ratio of 4 lb. Suståne 2-3-3 to 1 gallon of water or 2 tons per 1,000 gallon tank)

Soil Remediation: For bio-remediation, forest re-establishment & extreme situations where top soil has been removed or badly damaged.

  • Incorporate 136 lb per 1,000 ft2 into the damaged soil.
  • Re-apply 60 to 90 days later at a rate of 68 lb. per 1,000 ft2.

Preparation for Landscapes and Remediation:

Suståne Concentrated Compost is intended as a general soil builder for broadcast application and improving soil organic matter levels, cation exchange capacity and enhancing and diversifying soil biological activity levels.

Soil Preparation:
