Agriculture Composting

Compost is to soil what water is to a fish! Though most farmers are aware of this gospel, yet they do not use compost for a variety of reasons. One of the main reason is that while purchasing compost is expensive, production of compost is a tedious process that few farmers like to take up. Availability of cow dung is a problem and more often than not, lack of technical knowledge for production of quality compost!
