A detailed image of supercompost.

Supercompost is a more potent version of compost and is used in conjunction with the Farming skill. Supercompost reduces the chance of a player's crops becoming diseased while growing better than compost does, as well as increasing the minimum and maximum amount of produce from the crops.

To make supercompost, a player must place 15 suitable organic items (see below) into any of the compost bins that are located next to the allotment patches found around RuneScape. Once the suitable items have been added, and the lid of the compost bin closed, the contents will begin to rot, taking approximately 40-90 minutes until completion. During this time the player will not be able to open the compost bin or add any more items.

Once the supercompost has finished rotting, the player may open the compost bin and extract all of the supercompost by using a bucket on it. Each bucket of supercompost collected by the player will grant that player 8.5 Farming experience. When used on a farming patch, each bucket will grant an additional 26 experience.

Some suitable items are listed below, but for certainty, use the item on the farmer by the patch and they will tell if the item makes compost or supercompost.

Supercompost items

Quick supercompost

  • A quick way to get materials for making supercompost is by using pineapples. Picked in the Brimhaven Jungle. Each plant in the Brimhaven Jungle yields 5 pineapples each, and the nearby leprechauns can note pineapples, without the need for banking. Fruitfall scrolls for the Fruit bat can also be used to obtain pineapples among limes, papayas (every scroll), oranges, lemons and bananas. The calquat fruit is nearby for easy harvesting. Players may purchase 40 pineapples per day from Arhein, who is very close to the Catherby compost bin.
  • Alternatively, compost potions can be obtained from the Vinesweeper minigame for 5,000 points, or at the Grand Exchange. These potions can be used on a compost bin, which turns the normal compost inside the bin into supercompost. This generates 15 buckets of supercompost. Compost potions have 4 doses, so a single potion can produce 60 buckets of supercompost.
