Vermi composting is chiefly composting with worms. In nature, all organic matter eventually decomposes. In Vermi composting, worms are fed with decomposed matter and the organic material will pass through the earthworm gut resulting in worm castings.
Vermi compost, enriches soil in most natural organic manner, and also increases the quality, fertility and mineral content of the soil. Unlike chemical fertilizers that destroy beneficial microorganisms, the
organic fertilizer is completely harmless & provide rich organic soil that is best for plants.
Hence, Vermi composting involves harnessing of earthworms for cleaning up the environment. In the process,
earthworms and microbes work together and produce vermi-compost.
Vermi compost contains more than 8 kinds of useful microbial bacterium groups (over 600 million per gram). So it can supply all nutrition elements needed by the variety of plants. Use of Bio-organic fertilizer will reduce the use of harmful chemical fertilizers; give higher yield & improve soil fertility.
