Intensive soil fertilization with mineral fertilizers has led to several issues such as high cost, nitrate pollution and loss of soil carbon. Fertilization with organic matter such as compost therefore represents an alternative for sustainable agriculture. Traditional organic amendments such as manures, composts and sewage sludge have been extensively studied in the past. However, applications of biogas digestates and their impacts on the environment and human health are still unexplored… CONTINUE READING
