There are shortages of organic fertilizers in the arid areas including Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia produced annually about eleven million tons of agricultural wastes. Composting the agricultural waste is an alternative trail to alleviate the negative impact of its accumulation and/or avoid the environmental pollution. Abou Hussein and Sawan (2010) concluded that recycling agriculture wastes is a must for environment as well as economical saving. This recycling will not only increase agricultural… 


The Utilization of Agricultural Waste as One of the Environmental Issues in Egypt (A Case Study)
Agricultural wastes in Egypt amount range from 30-35 million tons a year of which only 7 million tons as animal feed and 4 million as organic manure are being utilized. These crop residues results
AGRICULTURAL WASTE AS AN ENERGY SOURCE IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES A case study in Egypt on the utilization of agricultural waste through complexes
The main problems facing rural villages in developing countries are agricultural waste, sewage and municipal solid waste. However, few studies have been conducted on the utilization of agricultural
Composting technology and the impact of Compost on soil biochemical properties
The composting process raised the fertilizing value of agricultural wastes as indicated by an increase in nutrient availability, and the application of the composted wastes as organic fertilizers to sandy soil increased the content of available N, P and K.
Composting and its applicability in developing countries
Composting has always existed on every field and forest floor, and intuitively it makes sense to compost the organic fraction of the municipal solid waste stream. This paper argues that composting
Composting mulch of date palm trees through microbial activator in Saudi Arabia
The main objective of the current study is to produce high quality organic fertilizer in large scale using abundant energy resources (Date palm trees mulch produced from grinded leafs, trunks and
Municipal Solid Waste
LFG emissions are calculated from non-flaring MSW landfills as well as from flaring landfills.The preferred method is used which is based on landfill capacity and tonnage input of waste and the
Scarcity and the rising coats of peat initiated a search for substitutes. The solids of separated cattle manure and grape marc (wineries' waste pomace), which are common agricultural wastes, were
