Background and Purpose
According to the World Food and Grocery Association (WHO), between 34% and 63% of world agricultural production has been rising due to the use of fertilizers. Increasing the excessive use of fertilizers and the negative effects of these fertilizers on the environment and health of living organisms, especially humans, have challenged the countries of the world. Such as an increase in the number of types of cancer. So nowadays, it is necessary to replace chemical fertilizers with compost. It is believed that compost increases the yield of the crop and decreases soil erosion in different climates of Iran.
