Good Agricultural Practices (GAP): Composting Practices Composting Practices Mobile App
"The Farm Composting Practices mobile app was developed to help ensure that your farming operation’s composting procedures follow USDA standards.
How does it work?
Easily accessible from any smartphone or tablet, the agricultural composting app helps ensure that farmers are following the proper procedures when composting materials, including regularly turning the compost pile, securing the compost bins and adding straw to the animal manure for aeration.
Instead of tracking composting facility best practices using paper forms, the app generates an electronic checklist which can be emailed or printed, and the results are automatically saved for your records. Simply open the app from anywhere in the field, and you'll be prompted to run through several checklist items related to the composting method for animal manure and composting site management practices. Use the results of the audit checklist to ensure that your composting program or composting facility meets the requirements for manure storage, bin composting and farmyard manure."
