AIM This study investigated the growth potential of Salmonella serotype Typhimurium and faecal indicator organisms in compost materials and the correlation between bacterial growth potential and the physico-chemical composition of the compost substrate and temperature. METHODS AND RESULTS Survival of Salm. Typhimurium, Enterococcus spp. and total coliforms at 14, 24 and 37 degrees C was determined in material of different degrees of maturity collected from composting plants for household… CONTINUE READING
