The commercial objectives of the work are to Identify the properties of Phase II compost (physical, chemical and/or microbial) and associated compost ingredients (straw, nitrogen sources, recycled water) and composting conditions (temperature, oxygen, moisture) and practices that affect the susceptibility of composts to infection from different moulds.• Identify the properties of Phase II compost (physical, chemical and/or microbial) and associated compost ingredients (straw, nitrogen sources, recycled water) and composting conditions (temperature, oxygen, moisture) and practices that affect the susceptibility of composts to infection from different moulds.
