Regardless of the type of agriculture, farmers have long since realized that crop yields and the maintenance of soil fertility depend upon reclamation of organic materials. This process occurs in nature through composting.
Although the benefits of compost are numerous and are widely known, farmers often find themselves dependent on chemical fertilizers and purchased compost from other sources even though they have all of the ingredients necessary to create a premium product themselves. The green waste these operations generate are hauled off and disposed of in pollutant landfills and incinerators at great expense rather than being converted and used to replinish our soils.
The traditional method of windrow composting is not able to keep up with the waste generation and demand levels of today. This process requires large plots of valuable land that are better used to grow a profitable harvest. In addition, this process gives off odors, attracts vermin and produces an inconstant end-product.
Since chemical fertilizers render soils barren over time and because a sustainable supply of consistent quality compost is key to success, many progressive farming organizations are looking at new ways to compost their biodegradable waste.
