We have seen great interest in Dried Pulverized Worm Castings for a variety of reasons. Hawaii does not allow the import of worm castings as they prohibit worms and worm eggs from coming on shore. Golf Courses do not want to add worms and are skeptical about using worm castings for fear of adding baby worms or worm eggs that will cause trouble down the road. Others like the dried,powdered worm castings because they are soft, clean and easy to distribute.
BUT… Microbes, the highly beneficial star ingredient in Worm Castings – in theory – die off when they dry out.
YET… People kept asking for them and they are a good seller.
SO… We decided to test them against Miracle-Gro and Jack’s 20-20-20 and to my udder amazement, BioSoil Dried Pulverized Worm Castings BEAT both traditional synthetic fertilizers!
Dried Pulverized Worm Castings are unique to BioSoil Farm as our cool, air-dry method keeps the microbes healthy in the process. No heat is used. Our staff carefully dries them and then pulverizes them, then filters them to create a truly beautiful soil amendment that works better than anyone would have guessed.
Sorry Miracle-Gro. Sorry Jacks 20-20-20 – we beat you again! Natural Organics wins over highly processed natural gas and blast mined ingredients!!
