    When building large crop storage systems it become necessary to have a large amount of hoppers to move the items around. The problem is that these hoppers are always looking for items to suck in wasting valuable compute time on the server. There is a solution though, if you place a composter on top of the hoppers, the hoppers will only check the one slot of the composter every tick instead of all the air above them. This reduces the load on the server, however since this doesn't reduce the load on the client and increase fps there is limited motive for players to cover their hoppers. Adding in the wood intensive crafting process for composters, most players would opt not to bother. That is why I am suggesting that composters be added to /shop in the misc. section for a low or even free price so that players will be more willing to cover their hoppers.

    The reason for why this helps reduce lag is better explained in this reddit post:

    I agree that it would be great to have more ways to reduce the lag on the server and we already have some similar blocks like the barrel in shop so why not composterss :D

    You are correct and it seems they only end up costing about $100 each when made this way but I still want composters and chests on the shop for a simple reason, I'm lazy :p
