hello .thank you for your information in the website. i’m going to run a farm producing compost and vermi and need for principal information for this. since you’ve been working for many years more than me,would you please give me some guides and experiences ,please?
Vermicomposting is easy to do and set up in either pits or concrete tanks or well rings or in wooden or plastic worm boxes appropriate to your given situation. It is preferable to select a composting site under shade, and to prevent water from building up and stagnating in pits during heavy rains.
Use the right types of worms, epigeics or anecic worms for your particular situation. Feed the worms with food waste, paper, cardboard, agriculture waste, manures, and biosolids. As well as bedding materials that provides the worms with a relatively stable habitat. DO NOT use meat or other fatty or greasy wastes, these will kill the worms.
Vermicomposting can be performed all year-round, providing that environmental conditions remain within acceptable limits. Worms are oxygen breathers so rotate or aerate your worm pile.
Vermicomposting has a good potential to turn waste material into a valuable soil amendment if done right. 🙂
