Breaking Down Peastraw
What can you use on pea straw to help it break down quickly?
To accelerate the break down of carbon rich organic matter add acceptable nitrogen materials, such as manures, blood and bone and fish fertiliser. Keep the other factors which are important for microbial action at an optimum as well, such as moisture, pH and temperature. The easiest one to look after is the water, make sure the material is sufficiently moistened.
