Optimising benefits of vermiculture in commercial-scale vegetable farms (VG15037)

Key research provider: Blue Environment

What’s it all about?

This project is investigating the use of commercial-scale vermiculture in the Australian vegetable industry to improve productivity (vermiculture is the cultivation of earthworms to convert organic waste into compost and/or for direct soil integration and management).

Its end-goal is to develop guidelines for the use of vermiculture as part of soil and nutrient management, and to provide a cost/benefit analysis to help growers decide whether to adopt the approach.
