  • A laboratory study investigating the effects of novel biobased fertilisers on soil quality indicators.
  • Overall, the application of biobased fertilisers improved soil quality.
  • Compost improved soil quality most, followed by a plant-based fertiliser and a biogas digestate.
  • The amount of total and easily degradable carbon added was only related to some positive effects.
  • Some but not all effects of long-term field application of compost could be predicted in the laboratory.
