Vermicompost

Price: 7000 INR
  • Delivery Time:15 Days
  • Supply Ability:As per Order Per Month
  • Source:earthworms nd tree waste
  • Grade:1
  • Product Name:vERMICOMPOST
  • EINECS No:32
  • Moisture (%):50
  • Properties:Vermicomposting is the usage of earthworms to convert vegetable waste to a 100% natural plant fertilizer. Vermiculture is the side issue of the breeding of common earthworms for use in vermicomposting. The use of worm farms for vermicomposting is becoming a favorite way of converting waste to a valuable product while also growing more worms to increase the capacity of the worm farms. Organic The most important aspect of compost produced by earthworms is that it is 100% organic. There are no harmful chemicals and it does not need to be mixed with anything.

  • Properties:Only a few decades ago, the predominating thought was that earthworms were not very important for agriculture. Emphasis was placed on physical and chemical aspects of plant growth while biological aspects were neglected. We are now realizing how interactions between crops, climate, soil, and living organisms play important roles in sustaining our agriculture. Earthworms are among the most visible of soil organisms and have received considerable attention. They play a pivotal role in maintaining the productivity of our soils. This makes understanding these lowly animals and finding ways to make them thrive very important. Benefits of Earthworms The burrowing and feeding activity of earthworms have numerous beneficial effects on overall soil quality for crop production. The following soil properties can be improved by earthworms. Water infiltration Some earthworm species create vertical burrows, whereas other species live in horizontal burrows in the soil. The vertical burrows are typically open, although the worms cap the top with residue and excrement. The vertical burrows are very important points of entry for quick water infiltration into the soil, especially in no-till systems. Soil aeration Air-filled porosity is critical in helping plant roots to thrive. Roots need oxygen for their growth, whereas they produce carbon dioxide that needs to leave the soil. Because earthworms improve soil porosity, they improve the exchange of these gases with the atmosphere. Earthworms increase porosity by two mechanisms: (1) by creating permanent burrows, and (2) by improving soil aggregation. Aggregation is improved by the mixing of soil and organic matter in the earthworms’ guts. These highly stable aggregates are deposited by some earthworms in their burrows, and by others at the surface of the soil. In one pasture study, earthworms consumed between 20 and 40 tons of soil per acre per year. In another study, earthworms were estimated to consume 4 to 10 percent of the top 6 inches of the soil annually. This only goes to show the enormous amounts of soil that can be processed by earthworms. Soil compaction and soil tilth Soil compaction reduces the porosity of the soil. Because earthworms increase porosity, they reduce the effects of compaction. In addition, the excrement of earthworms has a very stable structure, which makes the soil more resistant to compaction and improves its tilth. Soil organic matter Typical earthworm populations can easily consume 2 tons of dry matter per acre per year, partly digesting and mixing it with soil. The importance of earthworms to mix surface residue with soil becomes very clear in soils that do not have any earthworms. Most of our Pennsylvania soils have at least some earthworms and the effect of their complete absence therefore cannot be noted. In the Netherlands, some soils reclaimed from the sea at first did not have any earthworms. In these soils the formation of topsoil with reasonable organic matter content did not take place, resulting in poor crop growth. Once the cause was established, the government of the Netherlands started a campaign to introduce earthworms. After the introduction of the earthworms, a dark topsoil layer was formed, and crop growth increased substantially. Plant available nutrients Earthworm casts have higher available nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and calcium contents than surrounding soil, as well as a higher cation-exchange capacity. Some micronutrients, such as zinc and boron, are more available in the excrement of earthworms through chelation of the micronutrients. Soil pH Soil passed through the gut of earthworms has a neutral pH. This is probably due to the pH buffering action of organic molecules produced in the gut of worms. Beneficial microbes Earthworms excrete material that has high concen- trations of beneficial microbes that help decompose crop residue. Nematode control Some earthworms eat harmful nematodes, thus decreasing the concentration of these harmful organisms in soil. Types of Earthworms There are more than 1,000 different earthworm species, but they can be placed into one of three groups (Fig. 1): Litter dwellers or epigeic species live in crop or forest litter. They are not common in most agricultural soils. These species do not ingest large amounts of soil. The manure or red worm, Eisenia foetida, is an example of a litter dweller. Topsoil dwellers or endogeic species live in the upper 2 to 3 inches of the soil. They live primarily from partially decomposed organic matter that is already incorporated in the soil. They eat their way through the soil, creating horizontal burrows that they fill with their excrement. These species ingest large amounts of soil that they mix with digested crop residue in their guts. Subsoil dwellers or anecic species live in permanent vertical burrows that can be 5 or 6 feet deep. These earthworms need surface crop residue to live. Their burrows remain open, although they cap the top with crop residue that they pull to the entrance. These species ingest substantial amounts of soil that they mix with digested residue in their guts. Their excrement is primarily deposited at the surface of the soil. The nightcrawler Lumbricus terrestris is the most prominent member of this group.

1Eco Vermi Beds

Price: 3500 INR
  • Supply Ability:As per Order Per Month
  • Properties:We are in operation in manufacturing & supplying these “Rain Safe” for cultivating vermicompost vermiwash and earthworms which will reduce the farmers expenses on chemical fertilizer. Rain Safe is totally different from other conventional methods of composting because of ease in installation, quick composting process, quality of the compost produced and collection of vermiwash. Our Rain Safe, we estimate that around 6.0 metric tone of Vermi compost, around 100 kgs. of vermiculture can be generated in one year. We have also provided an outlet to collect vermiwash, which is highly nutritious and around 80-100 liters can be generated in one year. We expect the first yield from 45 days of installation and around one tone of Vermi compost can produced. Benefits Installation: Our HDPE Vermi Compost Bed can be installed within two hours. It can be shifted within a short time close to the raw material source. Ventilation: There is special provision of reinforced net windows to increase the population of worms, thereby helping in enhancing the vermi composting process. Collection of Vermiwash: A specially designed outlet is provided to collect Vermiwash. This liquid composes of different micro-nutrients vitamins and digestive elements. We also support organic farming by undertaking trainings and installations of HDPE Vermi Bed for major orders.
