Worm compost is one of the top fertilizers on the planet, and--best of all--because t do indoor vermicomposting
, I don't have to deal with a frozen or snow-covered compost pile.
State of the Art and New Perspectives on Vermicomposting
His work has shown that an integrated approach that can take in everything from building dams and gullies to conserve rainwater and replenish groundwater to providing training on vermicomposting
and strengthening women's self-help groups, can have a significant impact on crop yields and, consequently, household incomes.
is a biotechnological process of composting, in which certain species of earthworms are used to enhance the process of waste conversion and produce a better end product.
uses worms to break down organic waste into rich material that can be used as fertilizer.
In addition to case studies, topics include a comparative study of municipal solid waste treatment technologies using the life cycle assessment method, management of solid waste by vermicomposting
, and integrated waste management based on the 3R approach.
While composting earthworms have traditionally been of tropical origins and unable to persist in cold climates outside compost bins, a European species, Eisenia hortensis has recently become prevalent in the vermicomposting
Universities have been brought on board to test new technologies in green roofing, waste water management, and vermicomposting
Earthworms strongly modify microbial biomass and activity triggering enzymatic activities during vermicomposting
independently of the application rates of pig slurry.
24 -- In my last blog I promised to update you on my efforts at vermicomposting
Evi Holroyd will discuss recycling food waste, more specifically vermicomposting
, that is using earthworms to turn organic waste into very high quality compost.
