How Compost Helps Your Soil Compost is known as the gardener’s best friend. The process of composting is all- natural therefore it has a wider positive impact on the environment. Composting is the main part of organic waste management. The use of compost increases the overall efficiency and productivity of the soil. Also it has numerous positive effects on the land. Let’s look over the advantages of composting which benefits soil: Balances PH levels A good PH level is necessary for the proper growth of plants. There are two major types of soil - acidic and alkaline. When you add compost to the soil it neutralizes the land. This ultimately flourishes the plants growth. Moreover adding eco-friendly manure in the land is always a better option than using hazardous fertilizers. Improves soil structure There are various types of soil patterns. Each pattern has different proportions of minerals in it. An ideal soil structure has sufficient nutrients useful microorganisms low growth of fungi bacterias and sufficient depth for crop growth. Compost brings back the moisture improves fertility and overall quality of the land.

Improves water-holding capacity A good quality manure keeps the land moisten and nourished for a longer period of time. It reduces the need to water the dry land again and again. As a result the need for frequent irrigation reduces and a few expenses are saved. Protects the land The use of artificial fertilizers and pesticides negatively affects the quality of the land. Thereby it affects crop growth and human health. Using natural manure protects the land from harmful fertilizers and pesticides. It does not degrade the quality of soil like chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Adds beneficial microorganisms A nutrient-rich manure contains many essential microorganisms. These organisms produce mucus which helps soil to aggregate. The microbes present in the soil convert nitrogen into soluble forms which plants can absorb. The microorganisms present in manure also minimize the possibility of plant diseases. On top of it this also helps plants to absorb nutrients far below the reach of their roots. Reduces plant diseases A good quality manure helps crops fight many diseases. The living microorganisms like pathogens fungi viruses infect crop’s growth. The manure helps to generate disease-resistant genes in plants which in turn helps plants to fight diseases. As a result massive crop losses due to diseases are reduced at large.

Stops soil erosion Soil erosion occurs due to water wind and human interference. It affects productivity and also increases the chances of flooding in certain areas. When rich manure is added to infertile land it raises its productivity. Crops grown in fertile land strongly hold the land and prevent soil from washing or blowing away. Conclusion: There is a wide range of elements in compost which helps to maintain the balance of the land. You should always prefer compost over toxic chemical fertilizers. It is possible to make manure at home using unique methods like a landfill composting vermicomposting etc. If you want to save your time you can install organic compost machine-like Goldust as well. One can put any kind of green matter like kitchen leftovers meal leftovers farming scraps lawn garden scraps into the machinery. This machine organically decomposes green scraps and produces manure. The process does not comprise any use of harmful gases or pathogens. It does not need any additional special microorganisms to produce manure. The whole process completes the ecological loop and aims towards the protection of the environment.
