Recycled Organics Soil Conditioners
In additional to tradition chemical ameliorants, Dr Mick Battam has specialised knowledge in the use of organic amendments on sporting fields. In addition to being environmentally friendly (closing the loop on waste streams for some Councils), these products can provide superior results.
