Facts & Findings

"Redworm castings contain a high percentage of humus. Humus helps soil particles form into clusters, which create channels for the passage of air and improve its capacity to hold water. Humic acid present in humus, provides binding sites for the plant nutrients but also releases them to the plants upon demand"
 
-- Dan Holcombe and J.J. Longfellow 1995.
What is Vermicompost

What is vermicomposting?

 

Vermicomposting is the process by which earthworms are used to convert organic materials into a humus-like material known as vermicast, vermicompost or earthworm compost. The goal is to process the organic material as quickly and efficiently as possible. Humus is a complicated material formed during the breakdown of organic matter by the earthworm.

 

One of its components, humic acid, provides many binding sites for plant nutrients, such as calcium, iron, potassium, sulfur and phosphorus. These nutrients are stored in the humic acid molecule in a form readily available to plants, and are released when the plants require them.

Benefits

  • This earthworm compost will provides many benefits to agricultural soil and plant, including;
  • Enhance and amend soil conditions in an organic and natural way for vigorous plant grows.
  • All essential nutrients and trace-elements are in the most simple forms, hence plants can quickly and easily absorb it.
  • Improve soil structure to optimum conditions for maximum aeration and water retention.
  • Promote fibrous root system.
  • Balance up soil's pH reading.
  • Improve soil's Electrical Conductivity (EC).
  • Improve the quality of the plant's yield.
  • Improve plants' immunity system to against diseases.
