C-Wise Soil Improvers

C-Wise fine mulches are ideal for use both as a fine protective mulch on top of the ground and as a soil improver below the soil surface. Their dual purpose nature provide the flexibility to perform multiple functions with one product. A fine mulch placed on the soil surface can effectively protect the root zone beneath a fruit tree, keeping soil temperature stable and retaining soil moisture, while also improving the soil health and fertility within the soil.

Humicarb Maturity 3
Premium grade soil builder for establishment and maintenance of high value commercial crops, professional turf and landscape installations.(Click to expand)
Organic certification

C-Wise Humicarb is a premium grade soil builder for establishment and maintenance of high value commercial crops, professional turf and landscape installations. Humicarb builds soil performance quickly with humus rich organic carbon that works like a sponge in the soil, storing water and nutrients for growth and energising beneficial microbes that drive nutrient uptake and provide natural suppression of pests and disease.
Humicarb 

Benefits

• Cost effective, delivers impressive results at very low rates.
• Significantly increases soil water infiltration and storage, reducing demand on irrigation.
• Maintains soil moisture availability, improving plant health and resilience through summer.
• Increases soil nutrient holding capacity, reducing fertiliser use significantly.
• Keeps soil working efficiently to drive growth and protect plants from pests and disease.

Application

Humicarb is a concentrated soil amendment that improves soil performance at very low rates of application in commercial crops and is safe to use at higher rates in urban landscape applications. The product is designed to be broadcast through a conventional belt spreader and incorporated into the soil before planting or banded direct into the planting row for more targeted results. For smaller treatment areas, Humicarb can be spread and incorporated manually before planting.

Suggested Programs


Commercial Growers

In broadacre crops, pastures and inter row applications, a topdressing of Humicarb at 1-5m3/ha stimulates plant roots and beneficial soil biology that builds soil carbon and provides natural suppression of pests and disease. Timing of application in late autumn or early spring before rain will provide the best results. In production horticulture, Humicarb can be broadcast at up to 20m3/ha and incorporated at bed preparation to maintain soil performance and disease suppression or can be precision banded into the planting row at 5-10m3/ha to create a powerful growing medium. For establishment and maintenance of vineyards, orchards and other perennial crops, talk to C-Wise for guidance on rates and application techniques.

Professional Landscaping

Humicarb is a versatile labour saving soil builder that can be used at very low rates to establish sustainable gardens and turf or can be safely used at higher rates for exotic plants and vegetables. For garden beds, new turf and general landscaping, spread a 5-10mm thick layer of Humicarb across soil surface and incorporate to a depth of 50-100mm, then water thoroughly before planting. For individual plants, shrubs and trees, mix 1 part Humicarb with 10 parts original soil and use as a planting mix around root zone. As a potting mix ingredient, blend Humicarb at up to 25% of soil mix volume to significantly improve fertility and water holding capacity.

Suggested Programs


Restoring Old Turf

After turf renovation, top dress a 5-10mm thick layer of Sports over surface, then level and irrigate thoroughly to assist penetration. For levelling and rejuvenating turf surfaces, spread Sports Blend at 10- 20mm thick over treatment area then level and irrigate thoroughly to assist penetration.

Treating Sting Nematode

For large scale infested areas, apply 5-10mm of C-Wise Sports across the whole area and rake or rub into surface, then water thoroughly to assist penetration. For smaller outbreaks, apply localised spot treatments to suppress activity. Do not apply chemical control methods or use high fertiliser rates when using Sports treatment as this would potentially suppress beneficial microbes. For severe infestations, consider pre-treatment with one of the C-Wise products designed for pest and disease suppression, then use C-Wise Sports to maintain control.

Maintainence Applications

To maintain turf vitality and protection from pests and disease, apply 2-5mm layer of Sports in Spring and Autumn or any other time as required and simply rub or rake into surface, then irrigate thoroughly.

Preplant for New Turf

Simply spread a 20mm thick layer of C-Wise Sports over the soil, rake or cultivate to 50-100mm depth, then irrigate and plant or lay turf immediately. Alternatively consider using C-Wise Humicarb® for long term turf underlay treatments or use C-Wise Humiclay® to permanently increase soil moisture holding capacity in sandy soils.
