Returning to the soil Organic Waste Products (OWP) such as manure, sludge or compost is possible when these OWPs present an agronomic interest due to the input of organic matter (OM) to soil and nutritive elements for crops. Organic matter being at the heart of soil functions, spreading OWPs may impact a number of ecosystem services provided by soils by modifying OM quantities and dynamics.
