If you are a landscaper, contractor, or work within the mining and extraction or construction industry, using compost and anaerobic digestate (also known as AD) can help increase harvests (how much you produce), maintain fertile soils, and manage your fertiliser bills. Compost and anaerobic digestate are renewable fertilisers providing sustainable crop nutrients and organic matter.
What help can you offer me or my organisation?
We work closely with specialist research organisations and industry representative bodies to make sure our guidance is practical and supported by robust scientific evidence. This programme of work in Wales is funded by Welsh Government.
As well as our downloadable guidance and resources, we can also put you in touch with organisations that can help you further.
