This greenhouse study evaluated the nitrogen availability of two biosolids composts, two mixed yard waste/poultry manure composts, and one commercially-produced poultry litter using tall fescue as a bioindicator. The results indicate that compost fertilization may lead to early season nitrogen insufficiency.
