Akers Certified Organic Chicken Poo
Akers of Lawn has paired with Adelaide’s Garden Guru, Michael Keelan, to package Akers Organic Chicken Poo, a natural product that has all the benefits of chicken poo and much less mess. Using composted chicken manure, our product is steam treated to stabilise the nutrients and maximise nutrient uptake, and then made into a pellet form.
A versatile, multi-purpose, and organic nutrient, Akers Organic Chicken Poo takes simple soil and transforms it to create the perfect foundation for planting.
Akers Organic Chicken Poo is environmentally-friendly and aims to:
- Improve the structure of the soil by encouraging worm activity and increasing microbial activity
- Promote faster and more sustained growth for plants
- Increase plant health, leading to better resistance to pests and diseases
- Improve water retention in the soil
Due to their varied diet, chicken poo provides valuable nutrients needed for efficient plant uptake, including high levels of calcium, and a slow-release source of both macro and micro-nutrients.
