Effect of physical parameters on the composting rate of bark growth experiments with bark compost. In continuing composting trials [see FPA 2, 379], optimum O2 evolution for hardwood bark was at 40-47 deg C, with urea added as a N source. O2 evolution from softwood bark was 2.5 times greater at 60-70% m.c. than at 40% m.c. If the m.c. is too hi...
