Worms Produce Another Kind of Gold for Farmers

  1. A small but growing group of worm farmers are creating a natural fertilizer product known as “vermicompost,” which is said to improve plant growth and make plants more resistant to disease and insects than plants grown with other composts and fertilizers
  2. Worms’ digestive process naturally excretes beneficial microbes into the soil, which drastically alter the soil’s composition
  3. Whereas conventional farming and the use of synthetic fertilizers rapidly depletes the soil of nutrients, vermicompost helps restore microbial diversity -- and the worms can even transform manure waste from industrial farms into this valuable compost
