Organic VermisTerra Earthworm Casting Tea
VermisTerra® Earthworm Casting Tea
This product is certified Organic by USDA & CDFA as safe for organic farming and edible crops. This microbial solution is prepared by a unique proprietary technique. Every batch is lab tested to be free of heavy metals and pathogens (E. Coli and Salmonella). This excellent fertilizer helps increase the ecological diversity and the vitality of your soil. As a byproduct of vermicompost, it contains all the benefits of earthworm castings and more. Viable plant health and production rely on their relationship with beneficial microbes the tea provides. Applying this high-quality Earthworm Casting Tea will result in healthier more vigorous plants, capable of withstanding diseases and pests, reducing the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Benefits of using VermisTerra® Earthworm Casting Tea include:
Improved Soil Structure: Microbes in the tea have the ability to create porous spaces in the soil allowing more oxygen to penetrate into the soil for increased biological activities to occur. Thus allowing plant roots to spread into the soil more easily. Well structured soil absorbs water better and retains water for longer periods.
Reduced Disease and Pest Pressure: The concept of Earthworm Casting Tea is to multiply beneficial micro-organisms which are helpful to plants. When using the tea, the “good” microbes will populate the surface of plants and take over the “bad” microbes living space.
Healthier Plants: Consistent usage of VermisTerra Earthworm Casting Tea will result in healthier more bountiful growth because the "good" microbes in the tea help break down the other nutrients already present in your soil, making them more easily absorbed by the plants.
Longer Shelf Life: Unlike standard compost teas, VermisTerra Earthworm Casting Tea does not have a limited shelf life of a few days. Since the necessary micro-organisms require oxygen to live, compost tea begins to lose its effectiveness right after aeration is cut off. As a result, harmful pathogens are a concern as they feed on the bacteria that die off in the compost tea. VermisTerra Earthworm Casting Tea breaks down to even smaller forms of bacteria and contains a higher concentration of nutrients than compost tea, so it can be stored for later use.
