Part I: Research Highlights
Use of vermicomposts, produced through interactions between earthworms and microorganisms, promote the germination growth, flowering and yields of a range of greenhouse and field horticultural crops, including tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, raspberries, grapes, marigolds and petunias. Vermicompost use has become a well-established practice over the last 10 years, in part due to the work of scientists at The Ohio State University.
