Can I mix fermented bokashi food scraps into my traditional compost pile?

Of course! This way, you will add beneficial microorganisms to the compost pile and thus improve its quality.

Fermented organic waste from Bokashi Organko can be fully composted on a compost pile or dug into the soil. With fermented organic matter, you will add beneficial microorganisms to the compost pile. We suggest you open the compost pile, prepare a hole and put processed content a little deeper inside the compost pile. Make sure you follow the other rules of regular composting. If you add relatively large amounts of the Bokashi pre-compost, you should monitor pH. It should be from 5,5-8.
