Frequently Asked Questions:

What is compost?

Compost is a nutrient-rich, organic matter formed by the decomposition of biodegradable materials such as food waste, green waste, yard waste, and other organic materials.

Can agricultural compost be used as a sole fertiliser?

While agricultural compost provides valuable nutrients, it is often used as a soil conditioner rather than a sole fertiliser. Farmers may supplement compost with other fertilisers to meet specific crop nutrient requirements.

How does compost benefit soil?

Compost improves soil structure, water retention, and nutrient content. It enhances microbial activity, promotes healthy root development, and helps reduce soil erosion.

How is compost applied to fields?

Compost can be applied by spreading it on fields and incorporating it into the soil through primary cultivations.

Can compost help with water conservation?

Yes, compost improves soil water retention, reducing the need for irrigation. Enhanced soil structure allows for better absorption and retention of water, promoting water conservation in farming.

Are there regulations for using compost?

Regulations regarding the use of compost for agriculture vary by region. Farmers should be aware of local guidelines, especially regarding compost quality, application rates, and potential contaminants.
