The Use of Compost Produced with the Addition of Wastes from a Poultry Farm in Potato-Growing

Tomasz Jakubowski , Jan Giełżecki


The aim of the study was to determine the effect of fertilization with compost prepared with the addition of litter and dead birds from a poultry farm on potato yield. The studies were conducted on potato Solanum tuberosum L. cv. Vineta in the years 2015–2017. Soil for growing potatoes was fertilized with the mature compost from a poultry farm. Dried wheat straw was used as a structural material. Different combinations of proportions between feedstocks (structural material, litter and dead poultry) were used. The experimental results showed statistically significant differences between these combinations. Soil amendment with compost produced with the addition of litter and dead birds was demonstrated to influence Vineta potato yield.
