Crop Trials Evaluate Green Bin Compost
Compost was added to strawberry beds at Heeman’s Farm in London, Ontario in early June at rates of 2 tons/acre and 4 tons/acre. The compost was rototilled into the rows, which then were covered with plastic mulch and planted.

Field trials are underway to determine whether compost made from source separated organics in the Toronto region improves soil quality and nutrient availability.
