Earthworm humus, coming from some type of organic waste, is a high quality natural fertilizer. It is recognized by the best edaphologists as an unbeatable product for the recovery of unproductive soils.
Earthworm humus has a wide range of possibilities of use, from home use for our small household plants, to large farms. Its extraordinary composition means that this product can be sold both in supermarkets and in large fruit and vegetable cooperatives.
These are some of the reasons why we recommend its use:
Because it has a lot of nutritional elements.
It incorporates both macro nutrients and trace elements essential for the proper development of plants.
A part of these nutrients are already mineralized, being instantly assimilated by the plant (short-term effect of humus). On the contrary, another fraction is part of the organic matter present in the humus. These elements will be released gradually towards the soil solution (effect of humus in the medium and long term), thus covering the continuous demand of nutrients by the plant, avoiding excessive losses by leaching, and ultimately maximizing the yield of the fertilization.
For its exceptional biological characteristics.
The microbiota present in the humus gives this fertilizer unequaled properties.
Said microbiota is a producer of growth factors (vitamins, amino acids) and hormones such as Auxins, Cytokinins, Giberelins, etc., which regulate such important phenomena as the development and flowering of all types of plants.
In addition, these microorganisms are responsible for progressively mineralizing the organic fraction of humus, releasing nutrients slowly and promoting their assimilation by plant roots.
Located in the rhizosphere, humus microbiota releases antibiotics into the environment, thus preventing the attack of pathogenic microorganisms through the root.
For its good physical properties.
Humus is defined as a soil structure improver, due to its organic content and more specifically to its humic fraction. That is why it dramatically improves (around 15-20%) the water retention capacity and cationic exchange of poor and unstructured soils (sandy soils), in the same way that it favors drainage and aeration of soils excessively compacted (clay soils).
For its neutral pH.
Given the pH of the humus (6.8 - 7.1), all the nutrients present in it are in their optimum range of solubilization towards the soil solution, from where the plant takes them. It can also be applied in large doses without any phytotoxic effect to the plant, moreover, a plant could be perfectly cultivated using only earthworm humus as a substrate. In that situation, far from showing some type of problem or deficiency, the plants develop with an unparalleled vigor. In the same way it is ideal for the germination of any type of seed in a short period of time.
Due to its blackish appearance, fine texture and intense forest smell, the handling of this product is a joy, far from the handling of pestilent fertilizers and highly irritating chemicals where ... “In which case of ingestion or contact with the eyes, seek medical attention immediately”.
Because it is an ecological product, both in its entire production process and in its use, so that apart from beneficial for plants, it is beneficial for the environment. Humus is obtained from residual materials from agricultural and livestock activities, so that it also removes them from the environment.
