Description

Worm Castings Organic Vermi Compost

Organic Vermi Compost is produced by the feeding action of earthworms. Earthworms ingest organic matter, fragmenting and grinding it into a finely divided material with high porosity, aeration, drainage and water holding capacity. This process enhances microbial activity and accelerates the rate of decomposition. This leads to a humidification effect where unstable organic matter or decomposing plant and animal matter is oxidized and stabilized.

Humus forms the dark brown or black mass of the upper soil and is important for storing and releasing plant
nutrients. The process is similar to composting except it is non thermophillic or a cold process utilising naturally occurring soil dwelling micro organisms.

Organic Vermi Compost contains a far more diverse microbial population than other composts. Micro organisms play an important part in soil fertility, they not only mineralize complex substances into plant available nutrients but bacteria in the earthworms’ digestive system also synthesize a whole series of biologically active substances including plant growth regulators.

Use of Organic Vermi Compost has also been shown to reduce the incidence of plant diseases. Research indicates that microbial activity and the make-up of the microbial communities existing in Organic Vermi Compost play an important role in plant growth responses. The reason appears to be that different microbes act on different substances from simple sugars to complex substances. If any are missing it will inhibit growth. The diversity of microbes in Organic Vermi Compost supplies a balanced and rich soil fauna to any soil or growing media.

Please note there are 40 Litres per bag, any less will be re-bagged.
