The importance of measuring moisture in compost.

The humidity of the compost pile has a direct effect on the activity of microorganisms and indirectly on the temperature it reaches. The humidity considered to be optimal varies depending on the materials to be composted, although the bibliography points to reasonable values in the range of 40 to 65% and the ideal is between 50-60%. Above these values, there is a slower decomposition, anaerobic conditions, bad odors and nutrient leaching. If the moisture content drops below 40%, the pile becomes too dry for microbial activity. An
Since the temperature reached is high, it is normal for evaporation to occur and, as a result, it may be necessary to moisten the battery frequently.
