What is Vermi-Composting?
Vermi-composting means the use of earthworms for composting organic residues.
How is Vermi – Composting done?
Earthworms feed on aged manure or organic wastes and excrete the wastes as castings (worm manure) an organic material rich in nutrients that look like fine-textured soil.
How does it enrich the soil?
Worm casts contain five times more nitrogen, seven times more phosphorus and eleven times more potassium than ordinary soil. The casts are also rich in humic acid, which is used for conditioning the soil, having a perfect pH balance and it also contains plant growth factors.
