EkosolFarm Worm Casting Fertilizer (Vermicompost)
EkosolFarm Worm Castings (EkosolFarm Worm Castings) is an Organic 100% Worm Casting Fertilizer (also known as vermicompost, worm fertilizer, vermicast) with Nutritious, Rooting, Strengthening, Yield Increasing and Earliness Providing Properties for all kinds of Vegetables, Fruit Gardens, All Field and Greenhouse Plants.
Worm Casting is an organic fertilizer that has been widely used in the cultivation of all kinds of fruits, vegetables, trees and plant species in the United States, Europe and many developed agricultural countries of the world for more than 90 years.
EkosolFarm Organic 100% Worm Fertilizer in solid and liquid form increases the yield, durability and quality of fruits, vegetables and all plants, while providing natural aroma and deliciousness and resistance to diseases in the roots and around the roots.
The natural secretions of worms contain 5 times more concentrated plant nutrients than the soil surrounding them.
In the digestive system of worms, there are many beneficial microorganisms for plants, nitrogen-fixing bacteria that enable the plant to obtain its vital need for nitrogen (N) from nature, phosphate bacteria, mycorrhizal fungi, natural growth hormones, amino acids, and enzymes that will have an antibiotic effect.
These enzymes and concentrated plant nutrients that pass into the fertilizer ensure healthy and rapid development in plants.
In addition, they pass the immune-providing body fluids (Coelomic Fluid) found on the worms and in their digestive systems, which protect them against pathogens that have been in the soil for millions of years, into the fertilizer and provide resistance against pathogens in plant
What is Worm Castings Fertilizer? What does it do?
Due to its structure, Worm Casting is both a powerful plant nutrient and soil conditioner.
97% of the plant nutrients contained in Worm Casting, especially the basic plant nutrients Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K), are in a form that can be directly absorbed by the plant.
It has been determined that the amount of usable nitrogen in Worm Casting in solid and liquid form is 5 times higher, the amount of potassium is 7 times higher, and the amount of calcium is 3 times higher.
Since worms do not have teeth, they digest what they eat through microorganisms and enzymes.
During this breakdown, they also break down harmful bacteria, fungi, microorganisms that may cause infection, and weed seeds.
These beneficial microorganisms living in the intestinal flora of worms are also transferred to Worm Fertilizer.
While there are 1.7 x 108 beneficial bacteria in natural and fertile soils that have not been subjected to chemical and physical damage, it has been reported that there are 2.1 x 109 bacteria in the intestinal flora of worms. (Beneficial Microorganisms are neutral in liquid form and take on a new life form when they reach air and a humid environment)
More than 40 substances with cytolytic, mitogenic, proteolytic, agglutinant, hemolytic and antibacterial effects have been detected in the Coelom Fluid, which is defined as the digestive system and body fluid of worms.
These substances are important elements of antigen-binding proteins and lysozyme defense systems. (It provides resistance and protection against root, stem, leaf and fruit diseases in plants.)
Anti Microbial Structure
Vermicompost; It contains a unique antimicrobial peptide called “lumbricin I”.
Pseudomonas Putida, Erwinia Herbicola, Mycobacterium Liquefaciens, Staphylococcus gallinarum bacteria and sclerotinia sclerotinia sclerotium, aspergilus fumigatus, aspergilus fumigatus Enicillium brevicompactum, verticillium, fusarim oxysporum and Aspergillus niger fungi have a broad-spectrum antimicrobial effect against harmful microorganisms such as Pythium and Rhizoctonia, which are soil-borne disease agents, and exhibit a suppressive attitude against the proliferation of bacteria and fungi.
There are active enzymes amylase, chitinase, cellulase, xylenase, cellobiase, endoglucanase, acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase and nitrate reductase in the intestines of worms.
As it is known, enzymes are loaded with protein, they meet the energy needs of the plant, and at the same time, since they have a catalytic effect, they accelerate the existing bio effects and therefore accelerate the growth of plant roots, stems and fruits.
The pH regulation characteristic of 100% worm compost produced with correct processes is provided by the enzymes listed above.
It has positive effects on plant resistance by playing an active role in antibiotic synthesis.
Chitinase enzyme found in the digestive system of worms; It fights effectively against these pests by breaking down the carbohydrate called chitin, which forms the fungal cell walls, is used by arthropods to build their exoskeletons, and is the main component of the mouthparts of arthropods.
In addition, since it breaks down the chitin substance found in the shell structure of insects, insects that sense this substance can create a kind of biological control method by repelling insects, especially in plants where the liquid form of Worm Casting is applied to the leaves.
It is known as very important defensive chemicals of plants. While the greenish chlorogegen cells around the intestine of the worms synthesize and store glycogen, they synthesize urea, fat and salicylic acid.
This substance passes through the digestive system of 100% Worm Castings and provides natural resistance to the plant in the soil where it is applied.
It contains high amounts of organic carbon due to the food given to the worms and its organic structure.
Organic Carbon increases soil fertility and allows carbon from the air to be stored in the soil.
Frequent tillage caused 50% carbon loss. The hydrosyl within the organic carbon chain in vermicompost neutralizes the sodium and chlorine elements of hydrogen by chelating them and prevents their passage to the plant.
Therefore, it reduces the salt effect on agricultural lands with high salinity.

Vermicompost Terms – Terminology
1) Worm Castings
Just as we directly call the burned feces of cattle fertilizer, we should call the substance excreted by the worm fertilizer.
Therefore, we should call the product that is directly excreted by the worm and does not contain any other decomposed additives, “Worm Casting”.
2) Vermicompost / Vermicompost
General compost mixture including worm castings. Worms cannot consume all the waste given to them in the system they are in.
For this reason, the end product obtained as a result of the consumption of other living creatures in the system is not only worm feces, but also contains other decomposed substances.
Therefore, the fertilizer obtained by this method of production should be called vermicompost, worm compost or vermicompost. Verm-: coming from a worm; -compost: It is used in the sense of coming from decomposed materials other than worms; Therefore, the substance in which the two are found together is called vermi-compost.
3) Liquid Worm Fertilizer
This product is a fixed-content product that is obtained using various technologies and has a long shelf life, and if obtained with the right techniques, contains mostly all the nutrients necessary for plants.
It may be more expensive than solid fertilizer due to the difficulty and scarcity of production techniques and product availability.
This liquid fertilizer is obtained by producing good quality solid worm manure in integrated facilities with the help of technology. It has a longer shelf life, probably because it contains various preservatives to keep the bacteria in the content dormant.
4) Vermicompost Tea
This concept covers the liquid fertilizer obtained from product no. 2, which is provided by immersing the humus in water and aerating it.
Since this tea contains pure worm manure as well as substances that have been decomposed by other living things and even those that have not yet been fully decomposed, the resulting product should be used immediately.
It doesn’t last very long. It is a product that should be used more carefully.
This is the most discussed and confused definition. Some refer to the water that drains from the system during vermicompost production (leachate: leachate) as liquid fertilizer. However, this is wrong.
The name of this product is leachate. It also contains various dangers.
For example, it not only contains the coelomic fluid of worms and the nutrient fluid drained from vermicompost, but also the fluid from waste that has not yet been composted. This means that a uniform product cannot be obtained, and since the liquid from undecomposed waste is crude, it may also contain harmful bacteria.
It is a product that should be used with caution. It may last longer in a closed container if it has been adequately ventilated beforehand.
6) Wormwash / Vermiwash
This product is a liquid fertilizer produced with a similar technique to vermicompost tea, but it is a different product.
This product is based on obtaining the coelomic fluid of worms rather than beneficial nutrients.
In practice, it is mostly used as a foliar fertilizer and as a suppressant of plant diseases. This technique is generally the least used and least known technique. Since there is no ventilation as in the production of vermicompost tea, the resulting product has a longer shelf life. It is safer to use.
What is 100% Worm Casting?
Two Types of Fertilizer are Produced from Miraculous Worms;
1- Worm Castings Fertilizer/ 100% Worm Castings
It can also be defined as 100% Worm Casting. Just as we call the feces of cattle directly as fertilizer, the substance excreted by the worm is also called manure.
The product in which 100% of the food given to the worms passes through the digestive system of the worms, is directly excreted, and does not contain any substance that has not passed through the digestive system, is called 100% Worm Castings.
2- Worm Humus / Vermicompost / Worm Humus
Depending on the time the worms and food stay together, it is a compost mixture that also includes worm manure, but 100% of the food given to the worms contains other decomposed and undecomposed substances that have not passed through the digestive system of the worms.
Therefore, the final product obtained is not only worm feces, but also contains 40% – 60% of food or cattle feces that have not passed through the digestive system of the worms, depending on the production time. For these reasons, this product is called vermicompost, worm compost or vermicompost.
Verm: Coming from a worm; Compost: It is used in the sense of coming from decomposed materials other than worms. For this reason, this substance, which contains both, is called vermi-compost.
In recent years, the majority of those doing worm composting business have been producing vermicompost using cheap techniques.
