Vermicompost is an ecologically pure organic fertilizer, the product of processing manure with assistance of technological earthworms Staratel. This concentrated fertilizer contains the whole balanced complex of essential nutrients and microelements, enzymes, soil antibiotics, vitamins, growth-promoting hormones. It also contains a lot of humic substances. Vermicompost is a unique microbiological fertilizer with the community of useful soil microorganisms improving soil fertility. Vermicompost does not contain pathogenic microflora, helminth eggs, weed seeds and heavy metals. The fertilizer is easily and gradually assimilated by plants within their life cycle.
The fertilizer improves agrochemical characteristics, increases quality and yields of agricultural crops.
Ч vermicompost quickly restores natural soil fertility, improves its structure and health;
Ч vermicompost is highly effective: plants and seeds immediately respond to it;
Ч vermicompost reduces seed germination period, promotes plant growth and blossom, fruits ripen 2-3 weeks earlier;
Ч vermicompost provides plants with durable immunity, increasing their resistance to stress, unfavorable environmental conditions, bacterial and putrefactive diseases;
Ч vermicompost provides high seedlings survival, optimum growth of flowers, and full blossom;
Ч vermicompost considerably increases yield capacity and improves taste of the production grown;
Ч vermicompost binds heavy metals and radionuclides in soil, prevents plants from accumulating nitrates;
Ч vermicompost provides high sustained ecologically pure yields
Vermicompost is in fact the castings or coprolites of earthworms. It is a black crumby soil-like matter smelling pleasant and looking like black earth.
Vermicompost contains a great amount (up to 32% per dry weight) of humic substances Ч humic and fulvic acids, humates. The organic fertilizer is provided with high agrochemical and growth stimulant characteristics. All nutrients are balanced and biologically available compounds for plants. Vermicompost does not contain any pathogenic microorganisms, helminth eggs, weed seeds and heavy metals. Moreover it contains a unique community of useful soil and plant microorganisms. When vermicompost is applied they inhibit soil, excrete phytohormones, antibiotics, fungicide and antibacterial compounds that help control pathogenic microflora. Eventually soil is improved and many wide-spread plant diseases are eliminated.

Thus, vermicompost is a highly efficient and ecologically pure organic fertilizer that improves agrochemical characteristics, increases quality and yield capacity of agricultural products.
Besides, vermicompost possesses excellent physicochemical properties: water stability of structure (95-97%) and total water capacity (200-250%). Thus the fertilizer is considered to be a fine ameliorant and soil improver.
