Up to 120% more fruits
Research proved that the addition of humic acid (extracted from vermicompost) to the planting medium can increase fruit production of strawberries from an average 5 fruit per plant for the control group up to 11 fruit per plant for the vermicompost group. This effect is independent from the concentration of available nutrients. Other plants tested were marigolds, tomatoes and peppers. Humic acid also stimulates the leaf growth and production of lateral roots, with an overall healthier plant as a result.

Spend less, get more!
A 2000 published study has shown that all of the positive effects from adding vermicompost to the planting medium were reached with concentrations from 10 to 40 percent of vermicompost in the mix.
That might seem a relatively high quantity if compared to liquid fertilizer, but it is important to remember that only one application is enough to cover a plant’s needs for many weeks!
If you want to increase your productivity and reduce your costs at the same time, vermicompost is the ideal helper, providing slow released nutrients, improving the granulosity of the soil, equalizing pH levels and retaining humidity.

GET Rewarded for managing your waste
We want to go one step further than "traditional" waste management. Instead of just taking things from your yard and leaving empty bins, sometimes we reverse the flow...
If you are a producer, you can claim a percentage of your choice from the vermicompost we produced with your biomass against a small fee: we call this Payback.
Depending on the amount of biomass provided and the percentage you chose, Payback can provide you with vermicompost for virtually everything, starting from a few plants up to a whole field or more.
