Vermicompost Development and Maintenance
Vermiculture is the practice of composting with worms. It's very fast; your compost pile will break down much quicker with worms than without. You can even compost your garbage indoors without a mess and without odor of any kind save for that of fresh dirt. Vermiculture is the practice of composting utilizing various species of earthworms to create a heterogeneous mixture of decomposing agricultural waste ,vegetable or food waste (excluding meat, dairy, fats, or oils). Vermicompost, also known as worm castings, worm humus or worm manure, is the end-product of the breakdown of organic matter by species of earthworm. This type of composting is sometimes suggested as a feasible indoor home composting method. Vermicomposting has gained popularity in both these industrial and domestic settings because, as compared to conventional composting, it provides a way to compost organic materials more quickly (as defined by a higher rate of carbon-to-nitrogen ratio increase) and to attain products that have lower salinity levels that are therefore more beneficial to plant mediums. The earthworm species (or composting worms) most often used are Eisenia fetida or Eudrilus eugeniae could be used. These two Species are recommended by most vermiculture experts, as they have some of the best appetites and breed very quickly.
