Farm-Scale Composting Resource List

Farm-scale composting, also known as on-farm composting, is a practical way to handle organic wastes and produce a stablized organic soil amendment at the same time. Yet, it involves specialized techniques for handling and managing large volumes of animal manures, leaves, and food wastes, paying attention to environmental factors that produce a quality humus produce while avoiding flies and odors. This is a Web-based resource list, featuring a selection of the best primers, reference books and manuals, and Web-based documents that comprise a ready-made technical library on farm-scale composting.
