THE bioactivators can facilitate the home composting, the practice with which it is possible to transform organic and mineral waste (kitchen scraps with various clippings) into excellent fertilizer and new soil. Let's start by saying that the composting it is easy to do, just have a green space and a container that can also be handcrafted with different materials. The important thing is that the container is bottomless because the waste must be in direct contact with the ground. THE composter purchased ready for use make work easier.
Further help, we said, is given by i bioactivators, biologically active substances, easily available on the market, which accelerate the degradation of organic substances and transform them more quickly into humus. By adding to the compost i bioactivators, and following some basic rules, it is easier to obtain a product that can also be used as a fertilizer at home and not a mass of smelly substances. THE natural bioactivators (non-chemical) most common are three.
Lithotamnium. In practice, red algae flour (lithotamnium calcareum) characterized by a calcareous structure that, overlapping on the seabed, forms large cliffs over time. Lithotamnium is perhaps the most suitable among the substances that activate compost, rich in trace elements, it is especially useful when the compound is fed by substances rich in nutrients such as kitchen waste and fresh cut grass. In the soil it brings magnesium and facilitates the assimilation of phosphorus.
Rock flour. It is produced industrially using quarry waste (a by-product of stone processing) and is a valid alternative to chemical products. It is made up of various crushed rocks (such as basalt, granite and lava) and is a valid alternative to the use of chemicals.
Bordeaux mixture. It is a mixture of copper sulphate and lime hydrate; once it was prepared by farmers, but today it can be found on the market in agricultural consortia and cooperatives. It is also used against numerous fungal diseases, such as peach blister and apple and pear scab. It should be used in moderate quantities.
