• Compost use in agriculture always brings about the risk of introducing plant and human pathogens.

• The backbone of the hygienization process consists of temperature, moisture content and chemical compounds formed during composting and activity of antagonists.

• Compost produced by proper composting, i.e. a process that produces high temperatures during asufficiently long thermophilic phase can be applied safely.

• Farmers should invest in good relationships with compost producers.
