Adding fertilizer is, in principal trying to trick nature. When we add concentrated nutrients in soluble form we try to make soil more fertile or just get a higher yield.More
Bio Humus (Worm Castings) grow plants 126% larger than chemical fertilizers!Read more
As the compost is passing through the body of the worms it is enriched with bacteria and microbes. These help plants to become more disease resistant and also repel some plant pests. The presence of increased microbial activity can make the area much more attractive to birds which also help to remove plant pests.
Vermicomposting produces a product that is naturally designed to benefit plants in several different ways. The most significant benefit is that the nutrients in earthworm compost are very easily absorbed by the roots of plants.
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.
Bio humus (Vermicompost) is a colloid and holds up to nine times its own weight in water. This can make a huge difference when there is a dry spell. The water is held at an organic level so tends to evaporate slowly while still being available to the plants.
Among the hormones that earthworm compost contains are hormones that help plants to grow. Germination of seeds is encouraged, the growth of the plant is stronger and the crop yield improved. This natural support for the plants is not available with chemical fertilizers.
As the compost works on the plants and they become healthier the need for pesticides is reduced. The reduction in pesticides helps the area to recover faster and can start an improvement cycle that will run on. This compares with the typical cycle when chemical fertilizers are used.
Our worm castings are kept nutritionally rich by feeding the worms a carefully regulated diet, containing everything your plants need. Nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, calcium, as well as trace iron, copper, zinc, boron, magnesium, and other plant food must-haves.
About half of the mass of worm castings is comprised of beneficial bacteria. You heard it right – worm casting fertilizer isn't just rich with bacteria, it mostly is bacteria. Worm castings also contain helpful protozoa, mold and fungus.These vermicast microorganisms improve plant health by producing phytohormones, breaking down organic material, and making those nutrients bioavailable.
Dirt Dynasty worm castings do not contain pesticides, artificial hormones, corrosive substances, or whatever freaky chemicals they're asking you to spread around your tomato plants these days. Frankly we wouldn't touch that crap – and mind you this is coming from guys who touch a good deal of crap.
