A methodology of the study of the process of composting plant and livestock breeding residues has been proposed. Wheat straw and poultry manure are used to study the composting process. The main factors that are most relevant to the composting process are the following: compost humidity, the carbon-nitrogen ratio and the straw-cutting size. A chemical analysis of the straw and poultry manure was determined before and after the experiments.
