Our Vermicompost Production
The Vermi Compost unit operates with a focus on eco-friendly practices, utilizing earthworms to facilitate the decomposition of organic waste, located at Doddathota, Sullia. Through this natural process, we produce nutrient-rich compost that serves as an excellent soil conditioner. The vermicompost generated in our unit enhances soil fertility, promotes plant growth, and offers a sustainable alternative to chemical fertilizers. Our dedication to environmental responsibility is reflected in the conscientious methods employed in the Vermi Compost unit, contributing to healthier soils and encouraging sustainable agricultural practices. Also, we conduct training programs for staff on vermicomposting techniques and safety protocols, along with providing educational materials for the community and employees involved in the process.
Our vermicomposting facility is equipped with seven beds, each capable of composting up to 3 MT. To ensure easy access and maintenance, there is sufficient space between the beds. We maintain a steady supply of suitable bedding material, including shredded coconut tree leaves, dry leaves, cow dung, and coconut coir. Regular inspections of the bedding material are conducted to uphold optimal conditions. Additionally, we use covering material to provide shade, maintaining moisture and temperature levels, and offering protection from excessive rain or direct sunlight.
