DAKOTA Peat is a highly decomposed organic matter resulting from when the glacial lake named Lake Agassiz retreated around 10,000 years ago. When Lake Agassiz retreated it left behind a layer of nutrient-rich fine silt which has been a great benefit to Red River Valley farmers for centuries. The peat is primarily made up of decomposed reeds and sedges, which separates it from peat derived from sphagnum and hypnum moss.
A highly concentrated organic material ideal for soil conditioning and growing, DAKOTA Peat is of the finest quality, made from selected deposits and carefully processed to maintain its excellent, agronomic horticultural attributes. Its unique cellular structure resists further decomposition, allowing the blend to last longer in soil, and provides successful growth through exceptionally high plant feeding abilities. These are essential for development of the plant’s root system as well as air and water balance, making DAKOTA Peat an ideal soil conditioner and growing medium for plants of all types in a variety of applications.
Maintain plants and turf with less water using DAKOTA. DAKOTA Peat acts a natural insulator against evaporation, reducing heat stress and field loss through its unique hydrophilic characteristics. Additionally, the heavy-duty organic soil conditioner is completely processed to provide users with excellent mixing to reduce or eliminate the need for special equipment. This uniform mixing also makes for more effective use of its plant feeding abilities and water relationship, which in turn also reduces fertilization and irrigation needs. These are essential for development of the plant’s root system as well as air and water balance, making DAKOTA Peat an ideal soil conditioner and growing medium for plants of all types in a variety of applications.
