This project is evaluating the use of municipal compost produced from organics recycling (municipal greenbin collection) as a source of organic matter (OM) and nutrients for field crop and horticulture production. The economic value of crop and soil benefits as a result of OM level increases with compost additions over time have been overshadowed by quicker crop nutrient responses to fertilizer products. This study will evaluate these potential benefits while exploring logistical solutions to timely, cost effective transport and application of these materials to crop land.
