Importance and profits of photo autotrophic microorganisms in composting techniques

Author(s):

Abstract:

Composting is a regulated microbial bio-oxidative process that breaks down biodegradable organic material under carefully monitored environmental conditions. The press-mud is allowed to mature while being kept at room temperature, creating compost that is stable, volume-reduced, hygienic, and yet contains mineral elements that are good for the soil and plants. The end result of regulated microbial decomposition of diverse organic materials into helpful and safe humus-like substance is compost. Composting is distinguished from "uncontrolled" decomposing or the straightforward putrefaction of biological waste by emphasizing a "controlled" process. Composting allows for the safe handling, storage, transportation, and application of organic material to the field, which turns it into a stable product. The Bio-compost was prepared in farm by sugarcane wastes such as bagasse and the dried sludge from Sugar Effluent Treatment Plant was mixed with it. Aerobic condition was maintained by regular tumbling of the trial bio-compost windrow and continuous monitoring of Temperature, pH and Electrical conductivity was done. Microbiological results were performed once a week or as and when required. After proper degradation of the bagasse the bio-compost was used in the cultivation of the plants in selected plot. The essential factors such as N: P: K was maintained by the selected strains of micro-organisms and it was also checked that no pathogenic activity by any microbes occurred while preparation of the bio-compost.
