The paper aims to present some of the results of the project “Research on the use of composts obtained from food waste”, where more compost variants obtained with OKLIN series composters were analyzed and tested on two horticultural species (germination and total growth). According to the specifications, OKLIN composters are designed to produce compost 24 hours after the organic residues are introduced. Compost obtained from different sources (grounds of coffee, vegetables (40%) and fruits (60%), vegetables (40%), fruit (50%), and fish ( 0%), food and vegetable waste ( 00%), etc) were analyzed regarding microbiota (bacteria, fungi, and respiration coefficient) and agrochemical parameters. Several ratio variants were tested on parsley (Petroselinum crispum) and Luffa, monitoring germination rate and total growth. All the compost variants, in general, presented beneficial and neutral bacteria and fungi with high potential as fertilizer. 0% and sometimes 20% were the most favorable compost ratios as fertilizer for the horticultural plants tested.
