Compost
Prohibited
Crop Fertilizers and Soil Amendments
Nonsynthetic
Compost that contains the following is prohibited: sewage sludge, synthetically fortified compost starter, glossy paper, and materials containing colored ink. Compost is prohibited if it contributes to the contamination of crops, soil, or water by plant nutrients, pathogenic organisms, heavy metals, or residues of prohibited substances. See also MICROBIAL PRODUCTS listings for information on compost starters, SEWAGE SLUDGE, and MUSHROOM COMPOST. See Glossary for definition of "compost."
205.203(c) & (e)
Compost – plant materials
Allowed
Crop Fertilizers and Soil Amendments
Nonsynthetic
Compost is acceptable if (i) made from only allowed feedstock materials; (ii) the compost undergoes an increase in temperature to at least 131ºF (55ºC) and remains there for a minimum of 3 days; and (iii) the compost pile is mixed or managed to ensure that all of the feedstock heats to the minimum temperature for the minimum time. Compost that contains no animal materials as feedstock may be used without restriction provided that it contains no prohibited or restricted-use plant materials. Acceptable feedstocks include, but are not limited to, by-products of agricultural commodities processing, and source-separated yard debris or "clean green." Compost made from plant material can become contaminated with fecal matter. Compost that contains more than 1x10³ (1,000) MPN fecal coliform per gram of compost sampled or more than 3 MPN Salmonella per 4 grams of compost sampled will result in a reclassification as ‘manure – uncomposted.’ See also MICROBIAL PRODUCTS listings for information on compost starter, SEWAGE SLUDGE and COMPOST – PROHIBITED. See Glossary for definition of "compost."
205.203(c)
Compost – windrow (plant and animal materials)
Allowed

Nonsynthetic
Plant and animal materials are composted through a process that establishes an initial C:N ratio of between 25:1 and 40:1 and maintains a temperature of between 131°F and 170°F for 15 days, during which period the composting materials must be turned a minimum of five times. Acceptable feedstocks include, but are not limited to, animal manure, by-products of agricultural commodities processing, and source-separated yard debris or "clean green." Compost must not contain more than 1x10³ (1,000) MPN fecal coliform per gram of compost sampled and must not contain more than 3 MPN Salmonella per 4 grams of compost sampled. See also MICROBIAL PRODUCTS for information on compost starters, other COMPOST listings, SEWAGE SLUDGE, and MUSHROOM COMPOST. See Glossary for definition of "compost."
