Compost: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

As agriculture and urban communities have increased their use of compost, there has been a corresponding decline in the quality of compost available for purchase. Because there are very few standards, virtually anything may now be sold as compost. The lack of high quality makes many compost users question its promised results. Compost does indeed have many benefits, but these are found only with well-made material. This session will discuss the practices and principles for producing or purchasing the most cost-effective, highest quality compost. Our presenters have many decades of experience in producing excellent compost and will discuss their opinions and their practices, which can be utilized by any composter or buyer. You will learn how to make or buy compost that will perform the magic inherent in this great soil amendment.
 
This workshop is approved for 1.5 Soil & Water Management CEUs for Certified Crop Advisors.
