Compostable materials normally contain different types of bacteria, fungi, molds and other living organisms. Five samples from different regions were collected. Mixed colonies were obtained while isolated from the samples. 13 microbial colonies showed abundant growth and studied them further through staining and biochemical tests. Consortia were prepared to get a better understanding of the activity of the organisms.
Compost inoculated with 1ml of selected 5 organisms showed remarkable color and odor change.
