Recycling agricultural residues in organic farming by on-farm compost production


Farmers are frequently facing agricultural waste production problems, which incorrect disposal may determine a damaging environmental impact, and soil fertility depletion. Sustainable valorization of crop residues could allow recovering valuable components as substrates and nutrients in microbial/enzymatic controlled processes, such as composting.

This practice abstract was elaborated in the BIO4FOOD project: the project is running from November 2020 to October 2023, and is to contribute to reducing crop wastes providing natural protection products, vegetables rich in health-promoting minerals and biofertilizers by composting.
