How the Genuine Jersey soil improver is made
Genuine Jersey soil improver is a compost that contains only green waste collected at La Collette. This product spends a minimum of 12 weeks in the open windrow where it goes through processes of sanitisation, stabilisation and maturation before being screened. The resulting soil improver is a Genuine Jersey product that is available for the public to buy. This soil improver has been approved as suitable for use in organic farming.
Other products made from green waste collected at La Collette
In addition to the Genuine Jersey soil improver there are four other products made from green waste collected at La Collette. All these composted products are tested as a minimum for:
- potential toxic elements

The Soil Improver grade material is additionally tested for weed seed germination and plant phytotoxicity.
All grades of compost products are available for agricultural use. This is administered by the Operations & Transport directorate within IHE and involves a consultant calculating the target application rate (based on nitrogen). A contractor then works with land managers to identify suitable fields and grades, delivers and spreads compost.
