Abstract

Composting may offer a reasonable alternative to facilitate the management of these leaf piles. Composting hastens natural breakdown processes associated with biological materials. Farm-produced compost fits well as part of a more sustainable food production system. The organic matter produced from the composting process could be incorporated back into the cranberry production system, used in other agricultural settings, or marketed to the public as a soil amendment or mulch.
