What is vermicast?
Vermicast is a thick black natural compound produced by earthworms. It is the fundamental component of natures soil building process. Vermicast harbours all the components neccessarry for plants to thrive and for soil to build and develop into a physically, chemically and biologically healthy growth medium. Vermicast is an organic technique that goes hand in hand with modern chemical agricultural techniques, it is the health of soil that ensures that chemical application to soil can optimally function.
Vermicast is natures soil builder.
Vermicast naturally occurs in healthy soil. The health of your soil from healthy to poor depends on the quantity of vermicast within your soil and your soils ability to sustainably create more.
