Vermicompost is the final product of composting organic material using different types of worms, such as red wigglers (Eisenia Fetida) or earthworms, to create a homogenized blend of decomposed vegetable and food waste, bedding materials and manure. Vermicompost , similarly known as worm castings or worm manure, enriches the soil and can be used as a high grade natural, organic fertilizer.
The process of producing vermicompost is referred to as vermicomposting.
Vermicompost is used as a soil additive, conditioner, and fertilizer. Vermicompost functions to add humus and organic matter to the soil providing bioavailable nutrients to the plants, increasing soil tilth. Vermicompost helps with water infiltration and retention, while buffering excessive acid or alkaline soil conditions. Vermicompost helps store nutrients and keeps them safe from leeching and irrigation, functioning to balance hormones within plant physiology, and adding beneficial biology to your soil.
