While farmers and gardeners are searching for new fertilisation ideas and organic farming is going from strength to strength, nature itself offers a solution through natural processes that exist on earth.

When a plant or animal dies, it will eventually be eaten by decomposing microbes. They will decay or disassemble it and put it back into the soil. This life-death-decay-life cycle has built the thin layer of fertile soil that covers our land. It nourishes and helps to grow our plants – the bridge of life between the soil and man. In Nature, there is no waste.  All is reused, and usually made into something of greater value still for the sustenance of life.

Vermicomposing is not just another waste reduction method. Over 100 years ago, Charles Darwin was the first individual to carefully observe the action of earthworms and the effect of the castings they produced. The benefits of worm compost, attained through an amazing interplay of biology, chemistry and microbiology sciences, lead to the production of an extraordinary soil amendment and plant nutrient.

Scientific studies prove that treating plants with extracts of earthworm vermicompost result in better plant growth and decreased instances of disease.

Ecoworm is an organic producer of concentrated fertilisers specialising in using the latest technology to extract naturally pure liquid humic substances from earthworm vermicompost.

Ecoworm’s range of Soil Extract Liquid fertilisers enhances seed germination, stimulates plant and root growth, increases crop yield and improves plant nutrition.

Ecoworm products are proven safe, 100% natural, certified by Soil Association and correspond to all EU standards and regulations. This allow them to be used in Organic Farming – just like nature intended.

Agriculture

Biological farming systems are based on sustainable, ecological soil management practices which maintain and replenish soil fertility by providing optimum conditions for soil biological activity. The starting point for this is a full soil analysis.  The aim is to “feed the soil and the soil will feed the plant” but this can only happen in a balanced biologically active soil.

At the cornerstone of a healthy soil eco-system is humus which influences and is influenced by every other aspect of the soil. Building soil humus improves the chemical and physical properties as well as the biological health. There are several million organisms that live in soil and in the rhizosphere. These organisms – which include bacterial fungi, protozoa, nematodes, mites, springtails and earthworms – perform a complex array of fertility maintenance tasks.

Each group of organisms interacts with each other and the plant and it is these interactions which forms the basis of the Soil Foodweb. Most of the micro-organisms contribute directly to humus formation and the release of nutrients from organic matter.

Some of these organisms have other roles in soil, such as breaking down crop residues, cycling nutrients, protecting the crop from diseases, and even fixing nitrogen from atmosphere. There is no doubt, that some of these bugs can turn the odds to our favour when applied to crop. We offer many solutions, which will solve many problems in farming, using natural processes and smart management.

Our soil specialists can help you to reduce input costs, increase yield and crop resistance to adverse factors while restoring soil health for the future.

About

The soil biology is similar to gut microbiota – both are often forgotten, but play a vital role in health of organism. I does apply for human, cow, plant or soil.  Our understanding about function of these microbes is limited, which is common sense, knowing that there is many millions of species out there. One thing is clear – bigger diversity means more benefit received. It can be better access to nutrients, stronger disease suppression or production of various substances, which contributes to improving health of soil, plants or other organisms.

Microbial populations are constantly changing, but they are in balance, unless it is disrupted by human activity. Will it be antibiotics for humans, or pesticides and tillage for soil, it does reduce the number of microbes, thus reducing the benefit they produce – often leading to nutrient deficiency and / or development of disease.

However, the science is constantly evolving, and we are finding new ways of utilising biology to achieve various benefits by inoculating soil with bacteria, fungi, and feeding them with perfectly balanced food source for maximum establishment.

Yes, biological farming practices is a future of agriculture, as it proves it everyday by increasing yields to more and more growers in all sectors. There is no doubt, that having your personal army in a field, which is working 24/7 to ensure, that your soil can produce its highest potential, is most cost effective and sustainable method of farming.

You can do it too! All you need to do, is to contact soil fertility specialists, test your soil, and find out, what can be done to increase soil fertility, yield and profit!
