- Availability of nitrogen (N) from compost is low as N derived from organic amendments mainly acts through the soil organic N pool. The mineral N content of compost is low due to nutrient losses during composting. This study examined the effects of combined application of compost and secondary treated sewage effluent on the dynamics of N and the influence of the treated sewage effluent on the mineralisation of organic matter in the soil...
