Iran Herbal Vermicompost

Iran Herbal Vermicompost is the product of composting using red worms to create a heterogeneous mixture of decomposing vegetable or food waste, bedding materials, and vermicast. Vermicast, also called worm castings, worm humus or worm manure, is the end-product of the breakdown of organic matter by an earthworm. These castings have been shown to contain reduced levels of contaminants and a higher saturation of nutrients than do organic materials before vermicomposting.
Containing water-soluble nutrients, vermicompost is an excellent, nutrient-rich organic fertilizer and soil conditioner. This process of producing vermicompost is called vermicomposting.

Vermicompost IranWhile other fertilizers may be rich in things important plant foods like nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus (NPK), they lack any microbial activity to give the product a long shelf life. But it’s bad for you because these processes eliminate one of the key ingredients to any healthy organic soil its microscopic life.
This increase in microbio diversity will give you two benefits that no other compost will:
1.    In the short term – add a wealth of microorganisms that will naturally protect your plants roots and leaves from foreign pathogens
2.    In the long term – Regular vermicompost application to your soil will act as a first crucial step towards rebuilding the microbial life of our depleted soils and getting your soil that much closer to the coveted self-regenerating nitrogen (plant food) cycle found in nature. For example, the soil micro-diversity of an old growth forest produces 3.5x more nitrogen than even the most nitrogen loving plant could ever use!

Vermicompost has been shown to be richer in many nutrients than compost produced by other composting methods. It also has outperformed a commercial plant medium with nutrients added, but needed adjustment for magnesium and pH.
Iran Herbals is a major exporter of herbs, seeds, vermicompost, nuts and dried fruits.
However, other studies have shown that the effects of home-made, backyard, vermicompost compared to municipal compost were lower in terms of soil microbial biomass, soil microbial activity, and yields of a species of ryegrass.
Further, one study concluded that the differences between methods of composting were in large part due to the feedstock, and therefore no generalizations can be made between composts made from varying materials.
Iran Herbal VermiCompost is rich in microbial life which converts nutrients already present in the soil into plant-available forms.
Unlike other compost, worm castings also contain worm mucus which helps prevent nutrients from washing away with the first watering and holds moisture better than plain soil.[27]
Applications:
    Potted Plants - An inch thick layer on top will greatly increase the limited soil health of any potted plant.
    Starts - Put a handful in the hole before planting and top dress around base of plant.
    Potting Mix - Mix 1:1 with your favorite potting mix.
    Top Dressing - Around existing plants and trees, top dress and inch thick layer and water liberally.
    Compost Tea - Add 1 cup of vermicompost in with your compost tea recipe and see the results!
Benefits:
Soil
    Improves soil aeration
    Enriches soil with micro-organisms (adding enzymes such as phosphatase and cellulase)
    Microbial activity in worm castings is 10 to 20 times higher than in the soil and organic matter that the worm ingests
    Attracts deep-burrowing earthworms already present in the soil
    Improves water holding capacity
Plant growth
    Enhances germination, plant growth, and crop yield
    Improves root growth and structure
    Enriches soil with micro-organisms (adding plant hormones such as auxins and gibberellic acid)
Economic
    Biowastes conversion reduces waste flow to landfills
    Elimination of biowastes from the waste stream reduces contamination of other recyclables collected in a single bin (a common problem in communities practicing single-stream recycling
    Creates low-skill jobs at local level
    Low capital investment and relatively simple technologies make vermicomposting practical for less-developed agricultural regions

Environmental
    Helps to close the "metabolic gap" through recycling waste on-site
    Large systems often use temperature control and mechanized harvesting, however other equipment is relatively simple and does not wear out quickly
    Production reduces greenhouse gas emissions such as methane and nitric oxide (produced in landfills or incinerators when not composted or through methane harvest)
