Review of Incorporating Compost into North Carolina Roadsides
Christina Kranz, MS
After several years of working with the North Carolina Department of Transportation, we have improved the current best management practices of compost incorporation for stormwater management, increased vegetation establishment, and reduced erosion. We will go over several years of research demonstrating how compost can be an effective tool on roadsides.
- Be familiar with the potential benefits of compost incorporation in improving soil physical and chemical properties.
- Understand how environmental factors alter improvements in soil physical properties.
- Interpret the field results and apply the to their practices
