Paper Title
Utilization and application of sewage sludge as agricultural compost
Sewage sludge which results as byproduct of municipal wastewater treatment contains adequate amount of organic matter. The application of biosolids to land for agricultural purposes is beneficial because organic matter improves soil structure, tilth, water holding capacity, water infiltration, soil aeration, macro and micro nutrients aid plant growth. In early days sewage sludge was treated as waste products due to the presence of pathogens and pollutants which may also contains synthetic materials, as the result of rapid development and urbanization the generation of sewage sludge also increases to a considerable amount. In-order to handle this situation fertilizers can be replaced with biosolids in agricultural farms. This paper represents the review of sludge as agricultural compost.
