Conclusiones sobre la Lombricultura

The development of vermiculture is the best way to return to the earth, in the form of an excellent fertilizer, the nutrients that one day were stolen.
With the vermiculture we give an excellent solution to the accumulation of agricultural and livestock by-products, thus avoiding the problems derived from them such as bad odors and CO2 emissions due to anaerobic fermentations that take place as a result of the massive accumulation of this type of waste. This also prevents the elimination of these wastes by incineration, with the consequent emission of dioxins into the atmospheric environment. We also revalue this type of waste, making it an excellent organic fertilizer, improving both the physical and chemical characteristics of the soil. Vermicompost, in addition to its excellent nutritional characteristics, improves the physical properties of the soil (facilitates drainage in compact soils, improves water retention in poorly structured and poor soils), also providing a tremendously active microbiota.
The null existence of residues with some polluting power, as well as the minimum emission of gases from the rapid and controlled decomposition of organic matter (during the composting prior to the formation of the earthworm humus that must be carried out on the organic matter) make of this practice, the healthiest way, from an environmental point of view, of the recycling of matter.
No discharge will occur during the development of this activity, avoiding environmental problems in this regard.
The bad odors that could be generated will be eliminated, since composting and vermicomposting by themselves, reduce and eliminate to a large degree the production of odors from the decomposition of animal manures by preventing the formation of reduced sulphur compounds (responsible for the intense smell during anaerobic decomposition of matter).
A product of great purity will be produced, with a captivating sight and smell, and magnificent nutritional conditions, offering a cost-effective alternative to farmers sensitized with the environmental problem that the use of chemical fertilizers is causing.
For all the above, it can be said as a final conclusion that the development of vermiculture, far from damaging the environment in some way, promotes the development of a productive system in accordance with natural laws, trying to preserve at all times the health of the territorial environment where it is found and offering solutions to common environmental problems.
