Soilcom presented on GrowingMedia2021
Last week Fien Amery presented SOILCOM at the Growing Media congres in Belgium. She showed the visitors the relationship between different compost indicators. And the relation between the characteristics and the composting practice.
The second introduction was about the quality and amount of the compost applied and the effect on plantgrowth. Conclusions from the research, carried out by ILVO, were that modest compost application can increase plant growth and soil nutrient status. However, too high compost application rates can be detrimental for plant growth, possibly related to too high salt levels. In this research the compost C/N ratio was not a good indicator for fitness for plant growth. Click on the pictures for the large version of the posters!
