How often do you turn the compost in the windrow?
We can divide the fermentation process into two stages, that is, the active phase and the aging phase. The first stage begins after the windrow compost is ready and it requires a heat requirement. You can accomplish this by turning the compost) of 55 degree Celsius(minimum) for at least 3 days. Using self-propelled compost turners can decrease the time of the active phase, which can finish in 10 days.
Then, the next stage is the aging phase, after active composting. It takes about 3 days.
What is the Benefit of Windrow Composting?
Economic benefits of windrow composting include improved soil quality and increased biological activity. Composting minimizes emissions of harmful gases from organic waste. More importantly, the use of compost can reduce the dependency on chemical fertilizers. In another way, windrow composting saves your cost of constructing grooves, while you also need an adequate area to operate.
