Innovation Compost Systems and Soil Fertility ✔ back to overview

Project description

 Composting is a proven procedure to raise soil fertility and improve soil structure. Some pesticides and toxins can be degraded more rapidly by adding compost. The processes within the composting time produce robust humus particles and help mitigate climate change.

 In order to optimize implementation of these procedures, 18 farmers (17 of them organic, one conventional) together with consultants and scientists built the Operational Group "Innovative compost systems", with the aim to develop new technological methods of composting, producing compost extracts and to test and adapt them to the conditions in Schleswig-Holstein.

 Part of the project is to determine the effect of differently produced compost on soil fertility because efficient humus development enables advancements in management of resource-saving nutrient and plant protection, especially in organic farming. By analysing labor cost the connection between economics and ecology will be established.
