To understand what good compost is like, it is important to know about Humus.
- Humus is the soil glue that determines whether our rivers run muddy or crystal clear, whether dust storms strip us from the soil again.
- Humus is the storage system for three incredibly important substances, Carbon, Water & Minerals that impact soil, plant, animal, human & planetary health.
- A 1% increase in Humus means that soil can hold 1,70,000 liters of water per hectare it could not previously hold. Humus is our greatest water management tool.
- Humus improves the nutritional value of our food.
Humus is literally the life blood of this planet!
Composting becomes the mantra for everyone.
The so called “Automatic Heater” type composters, can at best be described as green waste “DISPOSAL” equipment that burn out the green waste and bring out ~10% of powdery material labelled as “Compost”. They hog electricity 24×7 to rotate the drums and keep them heated leading to very high operation cost. Such sophisticated PLC controlled systems upon breakdown can create panicky situations if not repaired with in 24 hours because the incoming wet waste begins to rot.
