Mr. Okshin Lee of Gokseong, South Jeolla Province is an expert in ginseng and grape farming. He was designated "Organic Farming Master" by the province in 2011. However, he is also an expert in composting. He uses specially designed compartments to produce compost with different nitrogen content. He uses bark, chicken manure, rice bran, and microbes.

Composting takes 5 months followed by 2 months of stabilizing. He turns the compost four times during the compost. He puts in 150 tons of compost into 1 ac of soil mainly to improve soil physical qualities..

Whereas average soil humus content is less than 2 percent, that much of a compost will increase the level to 5 to 8 percent. That is the optimal level you want where you can farm only with water or additional nutrients.

    I live in the high desert of Littlerock, California with 10 Acres of land. It used to be known for it's many fruit trees, but no longer. My plan is to reforest Littlerock and sustain my family. I have a hard sand clay soil with little to no organic matter. So adding compost makes sense to me. At the same time the lectures tell me JMS is all you need. I have an avg of 10% humidity. I'm not sure what would be the best method to heal the land. Do you have any answers?
