Title in English: How growers can assess compost quality

Abstract / summary in English:

For the grower it is essential to choose the appropriate compost for the target application. A farmer can already acquire useful information about the compost quality using his own senses. Chemical analyses and biotests complete the information and allow the grower to evaluate and choose the right compost. A good relationship between compost producer and compost user is key to the successful implementation of compost in farming systems.
