The ‘Compost and soil water’ project aimed to investigate the effect of recycled organics on soil moisture. Through farm trials over two growing seasons, it was shown that demand for irrigation was reduced when compost was applied to the soil.
Check out the webinar summarising the project’s findings.
The ‘compost makes great bedding material’ project aimed to increase the awareness and use of recycled organics in the horse industry, by demonstrating and communicating that compost is a practical, suitable, and cost effective equine bedding and surfacing material.
