Crop Residue Management / Composting / Grass Thatch reduction

How can microbes enhance compost production and help with agricultural crop residue management, and contribute to grass thatch reduction?

Now that recycling and reuse have become the norm rather than the exception, composting has taken on a role of importance. Landfills now compost yard waste rather than simply burying it. Homeowners often compost their non-animal food wastes rather than putting it in the garbage. Flower and vegetable growers often compost crop cuttings to amend to new beds. Farmers may plant new crops directly in the stubble left from the previous crop to save energy. Biodyne has assembled a very capable team of bacteria and fungi in Environoc 501 & MeltDown that have excellent ability to reduce many of the difficult polymeric components of vegetation waste. They work with the indigenous plant inhabitants to optimize the composting process and degrade the compounds quicker. Environoc 501 & MeltDown have shown very good efficacy in Agricultural Crop Residue digestion applications as well as biological dethatch of grass. Specialized cellulose and lignin degrading and other microbes may assist in breaking down various crop and grass thatch residues that can help release nutrition and organic matter and bound-up nutrients into the soil. This biological digestion relieves many of the challenges associated with excess crop residue or grass thatch. Environoc 501 & MeltDown are a consortium of beneficial microbes selected for their special abilities to assist composting, crop residue management, and grass de-thatching applications.
