The MSAP process is a combination of both static pile and windrow composting techniques. When the Harvest Quest inoculant is added, it initiates a unique phenomenon that reverses normal composting physics. Instead of the pile heating up in the middle, it heats up on the outer edges first.
A conventional compost pile (or windrow) typically generates heat at its core, which quickly depletes oxygen. To avoid anaerobic conditions the pile must be turned frequently.
In complete contrast, the proprietary combination of microbes in the Harvest Quest inoculant rapidly multiply, initially populating the outer edges of a windrow just beneath the surface before working their way toward the center. This microbial movement breaks down the pile from the outside in, enhances the pile’s natural chimney-effect and enables aerobic conditions to be maintained without frequent turning.
