Hands-on Composting Training

This workshop will give you hands-on training at a compost production site that utilizes the Aeromaster Composting System. Visits to the compost site will allow you to practice the composting methods taught in the classroom in a real work environment. This hands-on experience will increase your confidence level and give you the knowledge base you need to produce highly profitable (and maybe, humus) compost for increased profits.

Here are a few composting methods you will practice at the compost site:
  • Getting started, feedstock synchronization
  • Combining rows
  • Evaluating a previously built row
  • Building windrows
  • Monitoring moisture, temperature, and CO2 levels
  • Row turning, addition of water & microbial inoculants
  • Daily management
  • Sampling rows for lab analysis

Whether you’re a farmer or commercial composter, this three day training course will give you the hands-on experience and in-depth knowledge you need to make Profitable Compost. 

If you’re a farmer, you will be impressed at the results of producing your own microorganisms to increase your yields and decrease your fertilizer costs.  

If you’re a commercial composter, you will develop the ability to make compost more cost effective and with more efficient methods than your competitors.

Commercial composters using the Aeromaster Composting Systems incur 50% to 75% less operational costs, while yielding higher quality end-product.

Focusing on results in the soil instead of waste disposal is a paradigm shift for the composting industry. This composting course will allow you to rub shoulders with the experts who engineered and mastered this technology.

By the end of this training you will have seen each stage of the Aeromaster Composting System and be able to determine what kind of composting is right for you!

These sessions will be highly interactive and will also include information on production troubleshooting and tips on increasing compost quality without increasing cost.

Facts

Here are a few unique features of the Aeromaster Composting System and Humus:

Controlled Process

Every step of the Aeromaster Composting System is highly monitored and highly controlled. These monitoring processes will help you achieve the most consistent results and produce the highest quality compost known as “humus” possible.

Expert Help

You’re never alone in the Aeromaster Composting process. This system is backed up by expert support from the composting consultants at Midwest Bio-Systems. Midwest Bio-Systems offers a full range of training to help you get started and walks with you every step of the way to help you become efficient and profitable.

Microbial Process

Making Humus Compost is a microbial process requiring many different species from many microbial functional groups. The Aeromaster Composting System provides the microbial inoculants necessary for this process.

The Use of Clay

Clay is overlooked as an ingredient in many compost recipes but is an absolutely essential ingredient in the Aeromaster Composting System. You can’t make Humus Compost without clay. Clay is the glue that holds the whole process together.

High Class Machinery

The Aeromaster Composting Process makes use of the best compost windrow turners on the market. The Aeromaster Windrow Turners are equipped with advanced particle management to ensure proper gas exchange, deliver the right amount of moisture to each particle, and maintain nutrients in the windrow.

The higher the quality of the Humus Compost produced, the greater the benefit to the soil and the greater the increase in crop quality and yield – far greater than the results that can be achieved with typical compost.

Producing Humus Compost will bring increased profitability to both the farmer and the commercial composter. We look forward to helping you become a more profitable composter!
