SOS farms are now composting the land in preparation for the 2008 t-shirt crop. Compost will cost over $100 per acre to fertilize our land. We use composted manure from a local feedlot(50 miles away) at the rate of 4 tons per acre. One field in 2007 that followed organic peanuts(2006), with compost produced 2800 t-shirts per acre. This was the highest yield ever for our farm, it was a good year. I have included a picture of this crop.
We pray for another good season as we continue to prepare the land.
