The reason for earthworms becoming so popular to be used as a fertilizer is because of the numerous benefits the earthworms have to offer. It is no wonder it has become such a big trend and here is why.

Worms help to increase the amount of air and water that gets into the soil. They break down organic matter, like leaves and grass into things that plants can use. When they eat, they leave behind castings that are a very valuable type of fertilizer.

Benefits of earthworms

  • Improves soil nutrients.
  • An analysis of earthworm castings reveals that they are rich in iron, sulphur, calcium, nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
    Research shows that worm casts release four times more phosphorus than surface soil. Earthworm tunneling can help incorporate surface-applied lime and fertiliser into the soil.
  • Improved drainage.
    The extensive burrowing by earthworms loosens and aerates the soil and improves soil drainage. Soils with earthworms drain up to 10 times faster than soils without earthworms.
  • Improved soil structure.
    Earthworm casts cement soil particles together in water-stable aggregates.
  • Improved productivity.
    Can increase productivity by 50–80%
