A new guide has been published recently by WRAP that aims to provide farmers and growers with expert knowledge on the benefits of quality compost.

The booklet, entitled ‘Using Quality Compost to Benefit Crops’ provides comprehensive information about the numerous benefits of using and applying quality compost made from garden and food waste.

It also highlights the results of a variety of scientific trials on the use of compost, including one conducted on potatoes, wheat, barley and sugar beet on a number of vicinity’s across the country.

The results showed that compost increased crop yields and gave long-term improvements in soil structure.
