Summary in the original language of the document

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.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Learn to compost on-farm!
What problem does the tool address?: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.
What solution does the tool offer?:To set up small-scale composting plant at farm (or district) level to effectively recycle organic wastes, by producing green compost as valuable (rich in humified substances) biofertilizer, that would improve soil fertility in organic and sustainable farming
