Summary

Quality compost can have a positive effect on soil fertility and plant growth and health.
This positive effect is not only observable in the laboratory, but also by growers.
Phytopathological problems could be solved with the use of compost.
Durable success can only be obtained if a quality management is resolutely followed.
Further research is needed to optimize the quality management of compost production and
utilization. For example, very little is known about the long-term effect of the different composts on soil fertility and disease receptivity.
