Why accelerate the decay process?
As the decay organisms become more active, they feed on nitrogen and other soil nutrients, and these resources are not available for crop production. This figure illustrates the relationship between the residue decay process (brown line) and nutrient availability (green line). The amount of available nitrogen and other nutrients is lowest when the decay process is at its peak. If the decay process is still underway when the next crop is growing, then the nutrients in the soil and the residue are tied up. By speeding up the completion of the decay process, Chandler Biocat 1000 helps to make sure these nutrients are not tied up and are available for the next crop.
