Composting coffee grounds
Composting is very good process of enhancing the yield of the filed. The yield that you make after composting your field and before composting your field differs greatly in terms of quality and quantity. Not only you are able to increase the production but the quality of the yield is also enhanced.

Composting your field 1-2 times a year will help the soil to retain its essential nutrients and will support the growth of plants and trees on it.
Coffee is something more than half of population consumes everyday. In order to compost the coffee grounds you can add the dead and dried plants all over the field. Coffee grounds are very rich in nitrogen and magnesium, sulphur and calcium. They release a lot of heat as well. The heat released by the coffee field is very helpful in speeding up the process of composting in it. 

After spreading the plants and dead organic matter, you can add a little water in it or sprinkling the matter during rainy season is also a great option. Coffee is a kind f plant that breaks down gradually and quickly during the composting process and releases oxygen. Diluting the ground acts as a fertilizer that speeds up the composting process. When you spread different plants and organic waste over your coffee field, you must water it daily with sufficient quantity as the micro organisms will be able to break down the organic material into compost easily. You can also add some worms in it as they will act as natural earth diggers and will allow the compost to be absorbed easily by the top soil.
