The Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) is setting up compost plants at various institutions, marriage gardens, restaurants, colleges and residential colonies under sanitation survey-2018. Compost is being produced every month from the large compost plant of BMC.

Outlets of compost would be opened in Bhopal’s krishi upaj mandis to ensure the availability of compost for the farmers of villages situated close to Bhopal city. A workshop was organized at BMC auditorium at ISBT in the presence of BMC Commissioner Priyanka Das in this regard.

About 15 farmer organizations and 50 farmer representatives watched a presentation on benefits of use of compost and technique of establishing compost plant and expressed their willingness to use compost.
