Compost is rich in beneficial microbial activity. Although compost purchased from the store usually isn't that hot. Regardless sterilization is a nono when it comes to compost, you should pastuerize it in a steam bath between 160-170F... I'm sure The Learner will have some comments to throw in, he's worked with compost quiet a bit.
