A small family company from southern Ukraine has been producing vermicompost since 2017. Vermicompost (biohumus) is a product of organic waste processing by the California red worm. Today it is the most effective organic fertilizer, environmentally friendly, harmless to the soil, plants, and humans. Biohumus is widely used for planting, feeding all types of agricultural crops, in floriculture, horticulture, soil reclamation, and also for insect control. It has been proven that the use of vermicompost at all stages of plant growth increases productivity by 30-50%, increases planting resistance to diseases and pests.
Biohumus is enriched with essential nutrients. Its composition breaks records for the number of trace elements, enzymes, vitamins, soil antibiotics, etc. All elements of vermicompost are perfectly balanced and easily absorbed by plants.
Agrochemical composition of biohumus,%:
• dry organic matter - 40-60%;
• humus - 20-30;
• total nitrogen 1.5-3.3;
• phosphorus (P2O5) - 1.8—4;
• potassium (KgO) - 1.2-3;
• calcium - 4.5-7;
• magnesium - 0.5-1.6;
• iron - 0.6-1.3;
• copper - 0.03—0.04;

And the number of waterings is reduced. And also vermicompost: • forms the natural immunity of the plant, makes it harder; • enhances the color of leaves of trees, flowers, lawn grass; • binds heavy metals and radionuclides in the soil, prevents plants from accumulating nitrates; • guarantees maximum plant survival; • reduces the time of seed germination and the appearance of the first shoots, increases productivity.
