covering the soil) for sediment and erosion control on steep slopes. Fig. 1 illustrates the use of compost on a steep slope as immediate, temporary erosion and sediment control in fi lter berms and compost blankets on top of existing soil. Berms or fi lter socks manage storm-water run-on and retain. actinomycetes, and yeasts are mostly primary consumers of compost materials. Macroscopic organisms such as mold mites, nematodes, springtails, centipedes, beetles, and earthworms feed on the primary and secondary consumers. 2. Key compost organisms a) Bacteria are primarily responsible for the first stages of decomposition in the composting process.

Transportation had developed specifications for compost use and at least six had conducted experiments on using compost to control soil erosion. Michaud () suggests that blanket applications of up to 10 cm of compost will effectively control erosion on slopes up to 45% for up to 3 years. Demars et al., () showed that blankets of both.   Erosion control and storm water quality from straw with pam, mulch, and compost blankets of varying particle sizes.

Composting is the controlled biological process of decomposition and recycling of organic material into a humus-rich soil amendment known as compost. Mixed organic materials such as manure, yard trimmings, food waste and biosolids must go through a controlled heat process before they can be used as high quality, biologically stable and mature compost (otherwise it is just mulch.

GMC as a mechanical aid for primary erosion control and as a nutrient source for sustainable revegetation of degraded soils. Potential for Use of Compost as a Primary Erosion Control Material A primary limiting factor in the revegetation of degraded soils is the loss of the erosion-resistant plant litter layer and soil nutrients during and after.

Top. The primary methodology and results from each project are summarized below, including the project involving the use of green material or compost to suppress Phytophthora cinnamomi in mulched avocado orchards. The demonstration results have been excellent, showing promise for erosion control or disease suppression in some crops.

Dairy manure compost mixed with wood chips (designated as erosion control compost, ECC) was examined as an erosion control material for stabilization of steep slopes on highway construction sites.

There are two basic methods for using compost in erosion control: compost blankets and compost filter berms. Each method has its advantages and choosing one will depend on the slope of the site, amount of potential rainfall, activity around the site, and intended vegetation establishment.

In many cases, both methods can be used in combination. poultry manures, and 3) co- compost material such as bio-solids and green material co-compost, 4) wood chips and forestry residual composts. Food scraps and municipal solid waste composts have also been used for erosion control (CCREF and USCC, ).

Compost, as a manufactured soil from a wide array of original materials, varies. time, and cost to buy erosion control material. • Can be left at the site when the job is done. Applications and Recommended Specifications There are two basic methods for using compost in erosion control: compost blankets and compost filter berms.

Each method has its advantages and choosing one will depend on the slope of the site, amount. other wood residuals to control erosion, as a soil amendment and to create a vegetated cover over closed landfill cells. TxDOT accepts high-quality compost, such as dairy manure compost, for use in compost-manufactured topsoil (CMT), in erosion-control compost (ECC) and as general- use compost (GUC) (TxDOT Special SpecificationCompost).

to erosion control are preventing the detachment of soil particles and reducing the volume of runoff. Erosion control may also be achieved by establishing protective cover such as temporary or permanent seeding, mulching, applying a compost blanket, or installing rolled erosion control products (mats or blankets).

Erosion control should be. This coarser, woody fraction of compost plays an important role when compost is used in erosion and sediment control.

It is even possible to add fresh, ground bark or composted, properly sized wood-based material to a compost product, as necessary, to improve its efficacy in this application.
