Vermicompost is the end product of composting with various worms (usually white worms, earthworms and red wrigglers). Worms create a heterogenous combination of decomposing food waste, bedding materials, and vermicast. The latter is also called worm humus, worm manure or worm castings. It is the result of the breakdown of organic matter done by worms. It has been determined that vermicast has less contaminants and more nutrients than organic materials before vermicomposting. With its water-soluble nutrients vermicompost is a great choice for fertilizing and soil conditioning. The process of producing vermicompost is called vermicomposting.
