Compost addition has been largely employed to improve chemical properties and microbial activities of several disturbed soils. However, few attempts have assessed the adequacy of compost quality considering the level of ecosystem recovery after frequent wildfires in combination with droughts. We investigated the suitability of the addition of 3 ages of compost (i.e. 3 weeks, 3 months and 9 months) crossing with 3 times since fire (i.e. 1, 5 and 18 years of recovery) to increase the soil organic and inorganic resources in frequently burned soils.
