Main Article Content

Ahmet Merhabi


The paper talked about use and economical value of compots which is use the Wind Row system is the simplest and least expensive composting process. Compost raw materials are stacked lengthwise. Nutrient content Good compost contains macro nutrients> 1.5% Nitrogen, P2O5 (Phosphate)> 1% and K20 (Potassium)> 1.5%, in addition to other micro elements. C / N ratio between 15-20, above or below is not goodThe result defined that organic waste can be processed using simple technology and the processed products can be used directly as natural fertilizers.
