This book gives the basic principles and biology of organic composting, starting with the fundamentals: the importance of temperature, aeration and moisture control. A discussion of composting materials follows including the use of additives, inoculations, and biodynamic preparations. Practical pointers are given about how to determine the quality of the finished product, when the composting process is completed, and where, when and how much compost should be used on the farm. Also contains a brief look at the business side of estimating costs for site preparation, equipment and labor. Includes recipes for compost tea and other brewed microbial cultures.
