Compost detail

Compost is an item used most commonly with the Farming skill. While not as effective as supercompost, it reduces the chance of a player's crops becoming diseased while growing throughout the plant cycle, as well as increasing the minimum and maximum number of crops that will be received by the player upon harvest.

It can be made by putting weeds, sweetcorn and other Farming produce into the compost bin at farming patches. It takes 30 minutes for the bin to make it rot into compost, but when it is finished rotting, the bin fills 15 buckets with compost. Multiple compost is used in some plants. Compost can also be bought from farming shops, such as those near the cabbage patch south of Falador, and Alice's farming shop north-west of Port Phasmatys.

Three buckets of compost can be used as payment for a farmer to watch over barley seeds as they grow, or two Buckets for potato seeds.

Compost is also an ingredient used in creating sulphurous fertiliser, along with saltpetre to gain favour in the house of Hosidius on Kourend.
