When making a compost pit, you need to dig a pit of measurement 10M by 5M with 1.20M depth. Use leaf litters and twigs pieces in the plantation. Fill up farm yard manure or sugar cane bagasse in layers. Apply cow dung slurry then a thin layer of local soil over each other to provide the required soil microbes. Then cover the pit with soil and wet it periodically to enable early decomposition. Decomposition process takes 45-60 days.
