Compost is full of high levels of nutrients – but these are not readily available for plant roots to take up. Bacteria inoculation is a highly effective strategy to improve the quality of your compost, with added odour prevention benefits.

ACF, our award-winning range of bacteria, breaks down the compounds in compost to convert the nutrients in these compounds to more usable forms.

The bacteria will absorb some of the nutrients as part of their own requirements and then release them when they die. They also process and release the nutrients they don’t need themselves.

ACF has been shown to:

  • Shorten the time it takes to reach heap temperature
  • Reduce the time it takes to stabilize the compost
  • Improve the percentage of volume reduction
  • Reduce odours
  • Enhance the properties of the compost as a soil amendment
  • Improve screening properties of the compost allowing for greater throughput in the screening process

In International cases, where the composted material has been used as a soil amendment, it has been found that compost treated with ACF has superior qualities. This stems from the improved volume reduction through carbon reduction, while most macro- and micro-nutrients become concentrated making for a richer soil amendment.

The crops in ACF compost treated plots are healthier, less susceptive to disease and pests, have a faster growth rate, and higher yield per acreage when compared with control plots.
