During the 5th and 6th semester 3rd year of this research, a series of experiments was performed in order to evaluate the effects of three humic acids HAs, respectively GC- HA, MC-HA and GCC-HA isolated from the three selected composts under study, a green compost GC, a mixed compost MC and green coffee compost GCC, on the germination of two switchgrass species, Shawnee and Alamo, and the effects of substrates obtained by mixing with a peat sample P the three composts at three different percentages respectively, CP 5, CP 10 and CP20 on the early growth of these switchgrass species.
