BIOHUMUS (VERMICOMPOST)

PROCESSED ORGANIC FERTILISER

100% natural product

Biohumus (known as vermicompost or worm compost) is made by Californian red works that process organic waste: manure, various vegetables, leaves, etc. Visually, biohumus reminds of black earth, however, it does not have any smell.


It can be used as a basis or additional fertiliser for any plant cultures as well as for improving soil. It contains necessary micro- and macro-elements, ferments, vitamins, humic substances and hormones for plant growth and development.

Benefits

Application

Biohumus can be used both as a dry substance and as a prepared water-based mixture.

When mixing the vermicompost with soil in proportion 1:3, soil structure improves and its density decreases.

ORGANIC MATTERS CONTAINED IN BIOHUMUS ARE BIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE. FOR THE BEST RESULTS COMPLY WITH THE RECOMMENDED DOSE!

Use of biohumus and its products for growing and fertilising various plants, vegetables, trees, bushes, corn, etc. decreases or even eliminates the need in use of mineral fertilisers as plants develop immunity against diseases, moreover, biologically pure and valuable products are obtained as a result. 

Additionally, natural resources that have been destroyed for years, by using artificial minerals and poisons in the process of agricultural industrialisation, are regenerated this way.

FEEDING DURING VEGETATION PERIOD 

Once a month pour biohumus around a plant (1L of biohumus per 1 m2 or 100-150 ml around each root), mix with soil and water. Berry bushes and fruit trees are treated once a month, adding 1L per 1 m2.

USE OF BIOHUMUS

* in accordance with the recommendations of the Latvian Vermicompost Manufacturers Association
