Chemical fertilizers often accompany the use of pesticides which together are a leading cause of environmental water pollution.
What do Worm Castings do for Plants?
Composed of thousands of pure cylindrically shaped earthworm pellets. The worms consume organic matter. The matter, then homogenized inside of the digestive tract of the worm. The end product consists of minerals and trace elements that have been reduced to their most usable form. The natural cylindrical pellet shape resists packing and causes soil to be kept loose and oxygenated. Increased oxygen in the root zone along with improved water drainage creates free-living Nitrogen-fixing bacteria in your soil.
