Product description

Green compost is the stable, hygienic and humus-rich end product of the composting of organic biological waste streams (i.c. ‘green waste’). It is a secondary raw material containing the stable organic material, called humus, and the inorganic mineral fraction (of the green waste the composting process started with). The high temperature during the process means that compost is free of pathogens, insect larvae and weed seeds. This ensures that the use of pesticides and herbicides on compost-enriched soil will be limited. The amount of humus also increases and the cation exchange capacity of the material improves. The formation of humic acids from microbial degradation products also provides suitable properties for use of compost as a soil improver. Compost is often used as a soil improver in horticulture and agriculture, resupplying a soil that is exhausted by use in organic matter and nutrients. If this does not happen, the lack of organic matter would lead to soil degradation and structural degradation in the soil. Because compost contains – besides certain levels of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium –  a lot of organic matter it is the ideal medium for this. The nutrients in compost are structured in an organic matrix and are slowly released (availabilities (1 y) vary according to the nutrient between 10 and 85%). Compost is in other words a multi-nutrient soil improver with a slow fertilisation effect. This, on the other hand, helps to prevent the leaching of nutrients through sudden abundance. The immobilization of the nutrients is especially pronounced for nitrogen. Only maximum 40% of this will be released in the long term.
