It depends. Sandy soils have a very low cation exchange capacity (CEC) which is vastly increased with the presence of organic carbon. CEC provides soil with the ability to hold and retain nutrients that would otherwise wash out in the first rains.
Chicken manure contains a lot of readily available nutrients otherwise known as soluble nutrients. Soluble nutrients are fast acting and often wash away from unresponsive soils i.e. low cation exchange capacity (CEC). The chicken manure tends to have a low pH which can exacerbate the common problem of pH. Our compost is usually slightly basic (pH ~8.5) and has a high calcium magnesium ratio which is documented to stop heavy clays becoming very sticky. Secondly the microbes that are contained in chicken manure can contain hazardous micro-organisms such as E.Coli and Salmonella compost on the on the other hand have killed these microbes off.
Our compost is recycled from the local municipality which can contain foreign objects such as plastic. Screening the compost through a 10mm screen reduces contamination to a large extent, however small trace will always be present.
Because of this we aim our product for broad acre applications which do not carry the risk of finding its way in to footy fields and backyards where people have close contact with the product.
Most farmers have done enough research and talked about these problems for a while... It is the fear of using a product that doesn't perform compared to synthetics and other organic fertilisers.
