The Compost Foodweb audio CD

Dr. Ingham discusses what micro-organisms, from bacteria to nematodes, need to be present to make sure that all of the possible benefits from compost are obtained. Good compost can inoculate an incredible diversity of beneficial bacteria, fungi, protozoa and nematodes, and all the foods to feed them into the soil. The precise set of organisms that are needed depends on the desired plant, and Dr. Ingham discusses how to obtain those sets of organisms in the compost given different starting conditions and different methods of composting.
