Compost is generally defined as organic, typically plant-based matter that has fully decomposed.

The degree of maturity is an important characteristic of compost, which is determined by the management and duration of the curing phase.

Although most have heard of compost, if you were to ask 100 people what compost is, you would probably get 100 different answers.
Most people don't give a damn what is in their compost, to them chicken waste, cow waste, pig waste, rabbit waste etc are all good to go. To them waste is waste!

You have many options when it comes to providing a healthy environment for plants. While numerous types of fertilizers can be an effective way to quickly amend soil to grow healthy plants, they contain synthetic chemicals. Compost, on the other hand, is an organic alternative to fertilizers, and you can make your own or buy it.
