This article gives the details about the importance and uses of Vermicompost Project in India



Vermicomposting is a process of preparation of vermicompost through stabilization of organic waste by earth worm activity. Earthworms are ureotelic animals and hence excrete urea, which is rich in nitrogen.

Earthworms feed on detritus with decomposing organic matters along with soil. The excretory products urea, undigested matter and soil are used as compost for plants.

The process of vermistabilization is due to microbial activity of decomposition of organic matter with in the gut of earthworms.

In India, domestic waste is mostly of organic nature and contributes 70 – 80% of urban solid waste. Each household, on average, generates about one kilogram waste per day.

Now the government is giving more importance to eco friendly agriculture with out using Chemical fertilizers. Implementation of chemical free food products is possible only through vermicompost projects.

Vermicomposting technology offers recovery of valuable resources like manure from such biodegradable wastes.
