What is humus?



  1. 0 Votes

    Humus is organic matter “that has reached a point of stability, where it will break down no further and might, if conditions do not change, remain essentially as it is for centuries, if not millennia.” The process of humification usually happens naturally in soil or in the production of compost.

    In agriculture, humus is sometimes also used to describe mature compost, or natural compost extracted from a forest or other spontaneous source for use to amend soil. It is also used to describe a topsoil horizon that contains organic matter.
