Abstract
This article describes the final technique, evolved after several months of experiments, for preparing large quantities of compost simply and cheaply from a single material, Napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum), with the aid of twenty-eight head of cattle. The conditions did not allow of artificial watering. At least 1,200 tons of a compost, with the important quality of good division, are made yearly. On the average, the material is in the stack ninety days.
