In this study, the bacterial community succession and variations were investigated in poultry manure (PM) compost by the using high-throughput sequencing in six different concentration of clay [at 0% (T1), 2% (T2), 4% (T3), 6% (T4), 8% (T5) and 10% (T6) on PM dry weight basis] applied compost. The results indicated that dominant phylum were Firmicutes, Proteobacteria, Actinobacteria and Bacteroidetes, while Bacillus, Paenibacillus, Virgibacillus, Oceanobacillus and Clostridium were the dominant genera in all the treatments. Correlation analyses provided useful tools for insight into the bacterial interactions with environmental factors and also extension of the compost maturation and resistance of bacteria. During the course of study, the diversity of bacteria similar but relative abundance variable in each treatments. However, the average and the normalized (to bacterial RAs or copies of sequences) both remained greater in higher dosage of clay applied treatments. Finally, the RAs of various bacterial community composition was affected in PM compost by the clay application.
