The plants grow more efficiently and yield good quality of product through solar energy, carbon dioxide from the air and nutrients from water and soil.

A composting process needs organic waste to start the biocycle A bio-composting process needs special quantities of brown and green waste to start the biocycle

The biocycle continues after the plants die and decompose, and through proficient composting process the carbon dioxide return into the air and nutrients go back to soil. Through this decay process, compost is produced that hold water and nutrients in the soil to get better end product.

As the humus produced by the composting process is very critical to soil health, it requires bacteria to decompose the remains of plants and animals, after they die. After the decompose a rich, dark, soil-like substance remains that depends on certain conditions like air, water, nitrogen and carbon. By composting organic waste you can not only provides nutrients to soils, but also helps in environment cleanup by reducing the amount of organic waste that ends up in landfills or incinerators.
