0 Compost: The Commercial Advantages

These workshops are free and are aimed specifically at the Sports Turf Sector, and will be conducted by Ron Alexander - R. Alexander Associates Inc: an American horticulturalist and compost specialist with over 23 years experience in the US and the UK.

Issues of sustainability including recycling targets and diversion of biodegradable waste from landfill have resulted in the dramatic growth of the composting sector. The composting process can produce a range of high quality products which have many potential commercial benefits.

These workshops aim to demonstrate not only the chemical, biological and physical benefits of using compost but also the financial advantages of compost use in a commercial situation.

Topics for discussion:

· What is compost and how to purchase it
· The benefits of using compost
· Compost production and specification
· Quality standards and the quality protocol
· Cost comparisons of compost material and fertilisers
· Specifications for sports turf applications
· Compost use: tools and resources for the sports turf professional
