MED-Ina in Jordan supports Gold Sands, a vermicomposting farm project | ENI CBC Med

  • Compost that is prepared with the help of earthworms (Pheretima posthuma) is called vermicompost.
  • Earthworms consume large quantities of organic matter and excreted soil as casts.
  • The weight of the material passing through the body each day is almost equal to the weight of the earthworm.
  • The earthworms may be of local species or more vigorous exotic ones.
  • The casts of earthworms have several enzymes and are rich in plant nutrients, beneficial bacteria and mycorrhizhae.
  • On an average vermicompost contains 3%, 1% and 1.5% N, P2O5 and K2O respectively.
