What Changes are observed in a compost pit after an interval of 12-15 days till it is fully prepared?

Dear student

Please refer the solution below for the said query

Composting pit is a hole in the ground or any other surface where recycling of organic matter such as leaves, vegetable peels, fruits and other biodegradable wastes takes place naturally. Bacteria and fungi quickly and efficiently break down waste materials, producing minerals and compounds that are helpful to plants. A compost pit should be present in a cool and shady place and it must be  ideally 3 feet in depth.   

The biodegradable wastes are decomposed by the earthworms along with microorganisms like bacteria and fungi after an interval of 12-15 days and finally changed into compost (manure). This manure can be then mixed with soil to increase its fertility. 

Hope this information clears your doubt about the topic.
