As an earthworm tunnels through the
soil, it digests organic material and
excretes it in the form of worm castings.
Worm Castings are a rich soil amendment
containing nutrients in a form usable to
plants. Over the course of a single day,
an earthworm will produce worm castings
equal to its own weight.
Worm Tea - Organic Fertilizer
Worm Casting and Worm Tea to aid in Organic Gardening
Worms are very beneficial to organic gardening. They are known to help
decompose plant matter, aerate the soil, and leave behind a rich fertilizer
with their castings.
As composting worms eat manure and other organic substances, they
excrete tiny pellets called worm castings which make a great organic
fertilizer. Organic gardeners rely on this method of worm composting because
these worm castings balance soil ph and help retain moisture.
Other benefits of worm castings include improved drainage and aeration of
the soil. Unlike chemical fertilizers that can burn tender roots, worm
castings are safe to use at any concentration. Plants love this organic
fertilizer made from worm castings.
Research done at Ohia State University has shown that mixing worm castings
(10% to 20% by volume) into a commercial potting mix can increase the
growth rate of some plants by up to 40 percent. Research done at Mississippi
State University and by scientists in Italy have shown increased germination
rate and growth when a worm compost is used on cucumbers and carrots.
Along with many other trace elements & micro-nutrients, worm castings
have 5 - 11 times more nitrogen, potassium, calcium, and magnesium than
topsoil. It works great for vegetable gardens, just spread it on like you would
a chemical fertilizer and work it into the soil. For house plants use half worm
castings and half potting soil to improve the root systems. These advantages
are just a few of the many reasons D&S Worm Farm says "GO ORGANIC!" -
you won't be disappointed.
