On-Farm Composting of Hop Plant Green Waste—Chemical and Biological Value of Compost
Green agro waste can be turned into compost, which can then be used as an organic fertilizer, thus reducing the environmental impact of food and feed production. This research is focused on finding a
Tailored Bioactive Compost from Agri-Waste Improves the Growth and Yield of Chili Pepper and Tomato
An extensive use of chemical fertilizers has posed a serious impact on food and environmental quality and sustainability. As the organic and biofertilizers can satisfactorily fulfill the crop’s
Isolation and Characterization of Plant Growth-Promoting Compost Bacteria That Improved Physiological Characteristics in Tomato and Lettuce Seedlings
Currently, agricultural systems are inadequate to meet the demand of the population, coupled with the constant degradation of natural resources. Therefore, it is necessary to explore alternatives to
Use of Biosolids to Enhance Tomato Growth and Tolerance to Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. radicis-lycopersici
The European Green Deal proposes the reuse of any kind of waste that can be safely repurposed; sludge may also be reused as a biosolid. The present research aims to evaluate a biosolid made from
Potential of Composted Agricultural Wastes to Control Stem Rot and to Promote Growth in Tomato
Stem rot caused by Sclerotium rolfsii is one of the most devastating disease in tomato. An integrated management strategy implementing potential biotool is required to control this disease. Thus,
Co-composting of cotton residues with olive mill wastewater: process monitoring and evaluation of the diversity of culturable microbial populations
It is indicated that co-composting is an interesting approach for the exploitation of large quantities of agro-industrial residues with a final product suitable for improving soil fertility and health.
Composting: An Eco-friendly Technology for Sustainable Agriculture
The effective recovery of organic waste through composting has provided mankind with a multipurpose product (compost) which, apart from being used as biofertilizer and biopesticide, can find


Characters of compost teas from different sources and their suppressive effect on fungal phytopathogens
Compost teas (CT) are fermented watery extracts of composted materials that are used to control plant diseases and on crop fertilization. In this work, aerated (ACT) and non-aerated compost teas
Long‐term effects of compost amendment of soil on functional and structural diversity and microbial activity
We studied the effects of applying different composts (urban organic waste, green waste, manure and sewage sludge), mineral fertilizer and compost plus mineral fertilizer on chemical, biological and
Effectiveness of municipal waste compost and its humic fraction in suppressing Pythium ultimum
The effect of addition of a municipal solid waste compost and its water-soluble and humic fraction to suppress the effect of Pythium ultimum on pea plants was studied and suggests that metalaxyl has a nonspecific effect, producing adverse effects on aspects of soil quality.
Effect of municipal solid waste compost on yield and quality of eggplant
Organic agriculture aspires to return to more closed cycles of energy and materials, maximize reuse, employ rotation systems, use nutrients of organic origin and renewable energy sources, etc.
Quality Compost Production from Municipality Biowaste in Mix with Rice Straw, Cow Dung, and Earthworm Eisenia fetida
ABSTRACT The biodegradable portion of city waste is a potential source of plant nutrients, and appropriate techniques of composting can convert it to quality compost with higher nutrient content and
Effect of non-aerated compost teas on damping-off pathogens of tomato
Results showed that NCT prepared from the five types of compost had the ability to greatly reduce mycelial growth of P. ultimum-inoculated tomato seeds, and when applied on tomato seedlings inoculated with damping-off pathogens, various NCT also increased seedling fresh and/or dry weights.
Effects of Municipal Waste Leachate on Seed Germination in Soil‐Compost Mixtures
Investigation of the germination percentage and average time of germination of 23 species as affected by the leachates from soil, three different mixtures of soil-compost, and pure compost suggested a high specific sensitivity for toxic components of leachate from MWC-soil mixtures.
