We evaluated a compost amendment incorporated into a solarization process compared tosolarization of agricultural soils to determine if it produced any enhanced effects on themicrobial community, fertility, and soil functionality related to N and C cycling. at thebeginning (T1), one week after adding the treatments (T2) and just after finishing thetreatments (T3). Soil solarization with compost amendment (CAS) enriched the soil withdifferent bacteria and fungi, which were characterized by being involved in differentfunctions related to the N and C cycle; plant growth promoters or defense againstpathogens compared to unmodified soil (NAS). CAS brought added value to the soil byincreasing microbial activity, microbial diversity, and community composition, increasingfunctional soil fertility maintaining the soil C and N cycle.
