Effectiveness of crop-waste compost on a Eutric Ferralsol

By transforming food waste into compost we can give precious nutrients back to the soil, while reducing and reusing the waste produced at home and collectively in landfills. Composting is the natural process of 'rotting' or decomposition of organic matter such as residues, animal wastes and food garbage by microorganisms under controlled conditions. Compost is important because it enhances overall soil health and its resilience to shocks such as drought, including climate change adaptation.
