Answer the following.
What is role of microbes in compost production?
Microbes play an important role in various aspects of our lifes. One such important role is the formation of compost. The biodegradable waste which is collected from all around the cities are placed in landfill sites. Landfill sites are created by digging deep pits away from residential areas and the biodegradable waste is dumped into it. The conversion of this waste is then carried out by various kinds of microorganisms, specially aerobic bacteria and some kind of fungi. It takes time for formation of compost and then the landfill site is again ready to use while the compost can be used in agricultural fields, parks etc.
