Composting is the breakdown of organic wastes by simple plants and animals to produce humus. This manual describes the basic process and its dependence upon the proper provision of moisture, air supply and heat conservation. The different materials suitable for composting, and proven methods of heap construction, are discussed. An evaluation of farm composting, in terms of labour used and plants nutrients produced, is then given.
