Preparing Compost: Starting C:N ratio should not exceed 50:1. When working with high C:N materials, add materials with a low C:N ratio, such as fresh green material or manures. It is best to shred or cut the materials into small sized particles. Moisture within the pile should range between 45-65%.

Apply the liquefied Compostar uniformly with the organic wastes to be composted. Place the mixed materials into piles or windrows in a covered area to protect from rain (or cover with a breathable fabric). Ideal height of the pile or windrow is between 60-84”.

Check pile temperature every few days and when the temperature begins to fall, turn the pile and remoisten with water if necessary. Composting process should take about 4 weeks to finish depending on particle size, C:N ratio of raw materials, moisture and aeration.

Caution: If eye contact should occur, wash with plenty of water. Avoid breathing mist. Do not take internally. Keep out of reach of children.
