Vermicomposting

Vermicomposting is the decomposition of organic materials in the presence of air by making use of earthworms’ and microorganisms’ optimal biological activity. The earthworms are responsible for fragmenting, mixing, and promoting microbial activity in the organic matter throughout the vermicomposting process.

Compost = organic materials + decomposition with air, water, and sunlight

Vermi Compost = organic matter + decomposition with air, water, sunlight, and earthworms

Farmox Vermicompost = Decomposition of cow manure with air, water, sunlight, earthworms, and fine filtration to obtain only castings

Vermicompost – The need for Farmox

Farmox is a company that sources raw materials for the manufacture of vermicompost. While we all want our plants to be healthy and attractive, we often overlook the soil. If we take good care of the soil, our plants will take care of themselves, and we will be left with little work to do.

In most circumstances, vermicompost has been demonstrated to be the best soil conditioner. It enhances soil structure, which increases the soil’s water and nutrient retention capacity.

Synthetic fertilizers, such as urea, are made using a highly energy-intensive method. According to 2002 research, the manufacturing of ammonia, which is used to make urea, uses around 5% of global natural gas usage. During the production process, excessive greenhouse gases are produced. Nitrous oxide has surpassed methane and carbon dioxide as the third most important greenhouse gas as a result of excessive nitrogen fertilizer use. As a result, turning organic is beneficial not just to your soil’s longevity but also to the ecosystem. Soil is a complex ecosystem that hosts bacteria, fungus, protists, and animals, even though plant physiologists often see it as only a source of nutrients for plants.

Plants engage in a wide range of interactions with these soil-dwelling creatures, spanning the entire ecological spectrum (competitive, exploitative, neutral, commensal, mutualistic). Adding vermicompost to the soil involves introducing a large number of bacteria. Worm castings have 10 to 20 times the microbial activity of the organic stuff that the worm consumes. Vermicompost, like synthetic fertilizers, cannot be produced using a chemical process in a factory. Vermicomposting necessitates a large number of raw materials. The provision of raw materials involves a large number of people. They source all of their raw materials from local farms.

How to use Farmox Vermicompost?

Vermicompost mixed with soil at a rate of 20 to 30% is a good germination mixture. It will also ensure that your plants develop continuously and lushly for roughly three months without the need for additional plant nourishment. In most circumstances, vermicompost has proven to be the best soil conditioner. Always stir the vermicompost into the soil completely. Allow drying before applying to the surface. Allowing it to dry means allowing all of the microbes to perish. In terms of fertilizer or plant food, around 200 grams per plant per month for indoor plants and 250 grams per plant per month for outdoor plants. Around 250 grams of fertilizer or plant food per plant per month Once every 6 months, add 30 to 50 percent of the fertilizer to the soil. For lawns, Every three months, apply a 0.25 to a 0.5-inch layer of vermicompost on the surface. When it comes to new flora, Use the following Vermicompost universal potting mixture: 1: 1: 1 ratio of coco peat to the soil
