Contents within the current ebook will comprised a number of chapters at the position of important micro organism within the composting procedure. the appliance is depicted to accomplish the possible productiveness in addition to, in sickness administration and suppressiveness of organisms of phytopathogenic in nature. value of the compost elicits definite responses e.g. soil reclamation, soil fertility, soil wellbeing and fitness and affliction administration show as a result of caliber compost modification in soil. It serves as economical potential choice for sustainable crop construction and protection.

Impurity in city sewage in the form of the dissolved toxic organic connections, emulsions or dispersions delete by passing it through the columns filled by sand, glass, etc. at contact to warm air for increase in viscosity of liquids. The received viscous liquid mixes up with a punched substratum adsorbing it, for example hay and is punched by usual methods (Logsdon 1991, 1993).

Influence of relation С:N and humidity on efficiency of composting was investigated on an example of poplar wood the crushed wood (the size of particles of 1,7 mm) was punched on pilot installation. Ratio С:N were: 10:1, 30:1 and 50:1 at use of urea as a source of nitrogen. For each mix the humidity (30, 50 and 70 %) got out. Ratio С:N equal 50:1 or 30:1, and humidity of 70 % were most effective for composting. As the indicator of a level of a mineralization of wood from a poplar used amount allocated СО2 (Bernal et al.
