Abstract

Sewage sludge and garbage compost were found to be good sources of plant nutrients that increased yields of tomato, barley and lettuce crops. Maximum yields were obtained when the materials were used with the proper rates and combinations of chemical fertilizers. Agricultural utilization of such organic materials may provide a useful outlet for disposal of municipal wastes.
