ILVO started testing quality of composts. The international partners of Soilcom visited last months different compost producers in Denmark, Scotland, The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. They sent samples of compost (already 10 samples, 2 more to come) to ILVO  for the determination of chemical, physical and biological properties.


Defining and testing quality indicators for composts for specific uses instead of general applications is one of the goals Soilcom wants to involve.
