During the composting process CompoStar (L) enhances the microbes that will quickly change the ammoniacal nitrogen into organic forms. Thus keeping the nitrogen loss to a minimum, releasing phosphorous and creating quality humic fractions.
CompoStar (L) conserves and fixes nitrogen in the composting process, releasing phosphorus, and creating quality humic fractions.
Use at the rate of 100-150ml/metric ton per ton of organic wastes to be composted. Mix CompoStar (L) with water at 1:15. Do not mix with any chemicals and avoid chlorinated water.
To eliminate chlorine from water use Biolator at 1:2000 ratio with water, prior to adding CompoStar (L). Let stand for 12 hours.
Dilute the activated CompoStar (L) with water to the needed level. Moisture within the pile will need to range between 45% - 65%. Highest decomposition is usually achieved with 55% moisture and 50% air per volume. Approximate mass will be 500 kg per cubic meter. Apply activated CompoStar (L) material uniformly with the organic wastes to be composted. Place the mixed material into piles or windrows in a covered area to protect from rain, with the ground surface well packed and drained. The height of the pile or windrow should be between 150cm - 210cm (5-7ft). Consult your Petrik Distributor for more information regarding turning temperatures and carbon to nitrogen ratios.
