In vermiculture technology, the potential of earthworms as natural bio-degraders of non-toxic organic wastes for soil improvement and nutrient mobilization is being exploited. Earthworm population in organic matter rich soils act as natural bioreactors, harness beneficial soil micro flora, destroy soil pathogens and convert organic wastes into valuable product such as bio fertilizers, vitamins, enzymes, antibiotics, growth hormones and pertinacious worm biomass.

Role of earthworms in sustainable agriculture Effect of earthworm on soil fertility: Earthworms after having properly established in the soil modify soil physicochemical- biological characters of the soil and enhance nutrient cycling by ingestion of soil and humus and converting it into nutrient rich cast. The early availability of various nutrients such as P, Ca, Na, Mg, K etc are much higher in earthworm cast then in the surrounding soil. Barbote is the pioneer farm for estern people in term of vermiculture it is necessary to promote in rural communities for better nutrient management of soil if you want you will tale the enjoy from us.
