Depending on what I started out with, I'd need two to
three yards of raw material to make a yard of finished
compost.  While there are standard "formulas" for
making compost, everything eventually returns to
compost, so it's hard to go wrong.

Hi list,

    I am wondering how much raw material it would take
to make a cubic 
yard of finished compost. I am getting ready to apply
compost on 
strawberries next year before planting on plastic.
I've seen a study where 
this has given better results than the chemicals being
used, which I do 
not use. 

Thank You
Ernie
