03 November 2020 - Published by Hanne Lakkenborg Kristensen
Coordinated by ILVO.

Compost can be very diverse in quality and characteristics related to the variety in feedstock composition and management of the composting process. This report gives an overview of  a number of different compost quality indicators, describes how they are measured and explains how the indicators  are interlinked. Furthermore, this report includes information on what indicators are most interesting for specific cases (intended use, specific input materials, etc.) and for matching compost  with a certain use.

The report establishes the framework for the forthcoming activities within SOILCOM; trails and research with specific composts, advise to compost growers and stimulating the demand for good quality compost.
