Composting and compost utilization for agronomic and container crops



Composting and compost utilization for agronomic and container crops



Recent Research Developments in Environmental Biology, Vol 1, Part II: 451-513



Stabilization of organic wastes by composting is highly desirable as composting eliminates odour, increases nutrient contents, and prevents the organic wastes from becoming phytotoxic when incorporated into the soil. It is a microbial-mediated process, which breaks down some of the organic N to more readily useable forms, with the release of a sizable portion of organic C as CO2.
