Composting waste is much more efficient when the compost windrow is allowed to breathe. Turning outside or in an open ended building allows for more air exposure.The waste must be exposed to sufficient oxygen in order to increase aerobic microbial activity. Turning the windrow stimulates micro organisms which break down coarse organic matter. It is important that the windrow is turned frequently and efficiently. Compost turning times will be determined through monitoring. Temperatures of the compost windrow are taken with a thermometer probe. Usually more turns are required initially for the proper compost mixing and to activate the compost breakdown process. After the first two weeks when the compost windrow has reached it's maximum temperature less turning will be required. In the last 2 weeks even less. In total about 5-12 turns maybe required over the 6-10 week compost cycle depending on what you are composting.
If managed properly and turned sufficiently at appropriate times, rich, quality compost can be ready in as little as 6 weeks. Efficient composting gives you the tools you need to grow more abundant, high quality produce and have a safer healthier environment.
