Compost Aeration with EM•1®EM•1® can help you:
Composting is generally thought of as an environmentally-conscious waste management method. At present, the fundamental challenge composting facilities face is properly aerating compost piles. New and turned piles quickly begin to go anaerobic which can lead to pathogen growth, production of greenhouse gases and odors, and attraction of pests. Rising equipment costs have made aerating compost a prime, incurred cost for farmers. Frequent turning also exacerbates compost odor and dust issues, releasing ammonia (NH3) and methane (CH4) gases into the air, resulting in loss of valuable nutrients and organic mass. This makes for angry neighbors, unpleasant compost odor, numerous flies, and loss of profits.
