Powered by earthworms and millions of gallons of captured rainwater, California Gold results from a three to five year, fungal-dominant decomposition process of pure woody materials. California Gold reduces water and fertilizer use, and increases the plant's resistance to pests and diseases. It contains essential plant promoting compounds and serves as a complete inoculant for a diverse spectrum of soil microorganisms.
The source of wood is entirely derived from Central Valley orchard waste. It's free from pesticide residues, weed seeds, and pathogens. California Gold can be used as a compost tea ingredient or applied as a soil amendment.
