Maintaining the proper moisture content is crucial for successful composting, as it affects the activity of microorganisms responsible for breaking down organic matter. The recommended moisture content for a compost pile is generally in the range of 50-60%.

Therefore, among the options provided, 55% would be a suitable choice for maintaining aerobic biological activity in the compost mass.

During the main composting stage, higher moisture content, in the region of 50-55%, may be recorded.

Increasing the moisture content to 55% - 60% is desirable at the start of the summer, or dry season, to allow for an increased rate of evaporation during hot and dry weather.
