Are Harmful Nematodes Impacting Your Yields?

We sat down with Dr. Marisol Quintanilla, Assistant Professor in the Department of Entomology at Michigan State University, to talk about nematodes.  In this video, Dr. Quintanilla discusses various types of nematodes, the experiments she has been doing the last couple of years on how to reduce harmful nematodes in the soil, and finally walks us through what farmers should do about nematodes in their soil.



DAIRY DOO is our signature compost- a powerhouse in improving soil health. The added biology and carbon helps plants fully utilize existing nutrients or added fertilizers, giving you the biggest bang for your buck on all the products you use! DAIRY DOO is not like the compost created in backyards or traditional compost sites.  It has a specific recipe, is closely monitored, and is thermophilic which eliminates all weed seeds and pathogens.  This high-quality product binds sandy soils AND loosens clay while releasing nutrients for plant availability. This compost is available in semi-load quantities.

Layer Manure


Layer Manure is an economical soil amendment with added benefits of calcium, sulfur, biology, and trace minerals. We haul chicken litter from 5 different barns in Southwest Michigan directly from the laying operation to your farm.

Layer Ash Blend


This is a custom mix that is based around Layer Manure. It takes the best of the Layer Manure world and combines it with DAIRY DOO Compost and wood ash. This blend adds microbiological activity, calcium, silica, and carbon to the soil while also releasing locked up nutrients.  This increases water-holding capacity.

Mix consists of: Layer Manure | DAIRY DOO | Sili-K

Recommended Rate of Application: 1-2 ton per acre

$60/ton FOB Sears, MI

Layer Ash Blend With Gypsum


This mix has all of the benefits of our Layer Ash Blend, but with gypsum to provide additional calcium and sulfur.  The organic matter of Layer Ash Blend with Gypsum will bind your sandy soils, break up compacted soils, and improve the nutrient holding capacity while preventing leaching. When the compost causes this blend to heat, the layer manure and gypsum react creating an ammonium sulfate-like product, giving you a quicker release.

Mix consists of: Layer Manure | DAIRY DOO | Gypsum | Sili-K

Recommended Rate of Application: 1-2 ton per acre

Poultry Compost


Poultry Compost is derived from Layer Manure, but composted to meet any food safety standards!  Laying hens have a fixed diet, making the manure, and our resulting compost, more consistent.  This compost provides organic matter, beneficial biology, and carbon to the soil. 

Recommended Rate of Application: 1 yard-1 ton per acre

$50/yard FOB Sears, MI

K2 Blend


This blend is great for building soil health in grounds that have been underperforming.  It increases the diversity of soil bacteria while activating microbes already present on your farm.  The large addition of 600 lbs. of gypsum per ton also increases calcium and sulfur levels in the soil.

Mix consists of: Layer Manure  |  Gypsum  |  DAIRY DOO

Recommended Rate of Application: 1-2 ton per acre

$60.55/ton FOB Sears or Fennville, MI

Gypsum Plus


Gypsum Plus is an affordable way to add calcium and sulfur to the soil in the very first year.  This mix will help break up compacted soils and increase nitrogen use efficiency in your crops. It also includes plenty of active microbiology to benefit the soil’s long-term health.

Mix consists of: Gypsum | Layer Manure | DAIRY DOO

Recommended Rate of Application: 1-2 ton per acre
