Compost is made from organic waste

In the NUF Garden Simulator, Compost is an item that can be applied to farm Plots to raise the Soil quality.

Compost is different from fertilizer. Compost is best thought of as "food for the soil", whereas fertilizer is best thought of as "food for plants".

Compost can either be purchased or home-made from organic waste in a Composter.

Game Mechanics[edit]

Units[edit]

Compost is typically measured by volume. In the NUF Garden Simulator, we use Bags as our standard measure.

Possibly useful conversions:

  • 1 Bag = Standard 40 lb bag of compost
  • 1 Bag = 1 cubic foot
  • 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet
  • 810 lbs of organic waste => 27 bags of compost (requires Composter)

Raising Soil Quality With Compost[edit]

Soil quality can be raised one level by applying 5 bags of Compost to a Plot using the "fertilize" action.

Soil quality can be raised two levels by applying 10 bags of Compost to a Plot using the "fertilize" action.

Purchasing Compost[edit]

You can purchase compost by searching online for a vendor that sells compost. Please post in the forum thread with a link if there is a certain kind you wish to buy.
