Earthworms - Converting Organic Waste Into FertilizerHey, World. Here's an idea - instead of wasting Zillions of dollars on burning, dumping and otherwise wasting organic waste, feed it to earthworms instead. You'd save money and you'd create a rich, organic fertilizer (castings) to boot.
Doesn't that make more cents..err..sense? I mean, really. Spending money on one hand to haul away and destroy the mountains of organic material produced yearly, while on the other hand spending money to convert precious and ever-vanishing oil into fertilizer...it's crazy.
Facts About Worm CastingsDid you know that:
- An earthworm eats and excretes it's weight in organic material each day?
- This excretion, called castings, is richer in nitrogen, phosphate, calcium, and magnesium than the richest topsoil?
- This rich fertilizer is water soluble - meaning it's immediately available to the plant without any danger of burning whatsoever?
Worm Farming By-ProductWhat does this all mean to you, an earthworm farmer? Use this organic conversion capability of earthworms to grow your business. The value of worm castings as a fertilizer is becoming widely known and accepted, creating an ever growing market and demand for vermi-compost and worm castings fertilizer. Some worm farmers are growing worms just for the castings.
So long as the world is producing mountains of organic waste, there's plenty of worm food for your worms to convert into valuable fertilizer to sell. Oh yeah, and you'll have plenty of worms to take to market as well.
