Frequently asked questions
Vermicomposting can be defined as a process of converting organic waste into vermicompost through the activities of earthworm. It is the advanced method of composting where earthworms eat the decomposed material and excrete it out as casting which is known as vermicast or vermicompost. During feeding, earthworms use 5-10% of the food intake for their growth and the rest is excreted.
Vermicomposting is the future of organic farming. It helps to convert all organic waste into nourishing manure for crops, through the use of earthworms, which makes it entirely natural. Vermiwash, the liquid produced during the process of making vermicompost can be diluted and used as an organic and completely safe pesticide for the crops.
HDPE Vermibed are specially manufactured to cope with both indoor and outdoor composting operations. Our vermibed are made from multi layer coated HDPE fabric with UV stability, puncture resistant, waterproof, and are unaffected with most of the chemicals, which makes them strong, durable and compact.

The compact and easy to transport.
V. K. Vermibed Cost effective and economical.
Composting is one of the most convenient ways for managing solid waste. Conventional composting involves aerobic breakdown of organic wastes by harnessing the degradation activity of microbes at higher temperatures Higher temperature of the compost pile eliminates pathogens and weeds. Vermicomposting essentially involves the breakdown of complex wastes using earthworms at moderate temperatures. Most worms die at higher temperatures but vermi composting is relatively hands free process as overturning of the compost pile is not required. Vermicomposting is a great way of handling waste at a smaller scale.
V.K. Vermibed is made with HDPE (High Density Poly Ethylene) 7 layers of fabric. It is UV coated and waterproof material.
Yes, we have many dealers in different states. You can call us on the given number above to know more about our products and dealers.
Vermicompost is an organic fertiliser created because the vermicast by earth worm feeding on biological waste matter and plant residues. This compost is organic material containing adequate quantities of N,P,K (Nitrogen, Potassium and Phosphorus) and several other small nutrients essential for plant growth. Vermi compost may be a most well-liked nutrient supply for organic farming. it’s Eco-friendly, non-toxic, consumes low energy input for composting and may be a recycled biological product.
No, It is very easy to install V.K. Vermibed.
It’s composting with worms. There are lots of information on how to do it on the internet. Vermicomposting produces the best compost. It is very high in nutrients yet the soluble fraction is low meaning you can add more without harm to the plants and have a good supply of slowly available. It is not heat treated that kills off vectors so I suggest using only food scraps, newsprint cardboard etc in the beds.
As per BIS standard, the size of V. K. Vermibed is 12*4*2 . This size is in feet.
Vermicompost is compost prepared using earthworms. Organic material that can be processed by earthworms, such as crop residues, dry leaves, cattle dung, etc form the raw material. Earthworms ingest organic material. The process of decomposition of the organic raw material happens inside the gut of the earthworms and the waste excreted by the worms is vermicompost.
Vermicompost is dark brown to black in color, more uniform in particle size and does not usually have undecomposed material.
Farm Yard Manure is actually not a specific commodity. The term is loosely used to represent waste material from cattle sheds consisting of dung and feed waste that is heaped in the open and undergoes varying degrees of decomposition by microorganisms. The end product is non-uniform and may have undecomposed material.
Yes, Our V.K. Vermibed is available online on Amazon.
You can directly buy it from Amazon.
The vermicompost produced using vermibed makes compost totally free from synthetic compounds and other unsafe substances compared to chemical fertilizers.
No, vermi bed can be installed any place, Light weight reinforced HDPE flexible fabrics make them they can be moved economically and easy transportation.
Vermi bed have been created to assist farmer with making their very own natural fertilizer.
HDPE Vermibed 100% virgin quality material with added substances and UV stabilizer to make V.K vermi bed incredibly tough and enduring that gives an ensured Many years U.V life for the item
Organic farming is not about just discarding the use of pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics and growth hormones. Organic farming optimizes the productivity of diverse systems within the agro-ecosystem. The main aim of organic farming is to develop a structure that is harmonious and sustainable to the environment. This type of farming depends on ecological processes and biodiversity of the local area rather than use of inputs that have adverse effects.
There are many advantages of organic farming in india , some of which are outlined here:
Discourages the use of pesticides and insecticides or synthetic chemicals, thereby reducing the risk of soil contamination and adverse health problems.
Helps build healthy soil.
Fights the soil erosion problem.
Reduces the effects of global warming.
Supports water conservation and improves water health.
It reduces the algae bloom problem.
Improves animal health and welfare.
Less investment in farming due to inexpensive substances used as manure and fertilizer
When compared to chemical fertilizers, organic manure is considered to have low nutrient content, i.e. to supply 25 kg of NPK to the plants, around 600 to 2000 kg of organic manure is required and only 50 kgs of NPK complex chemical fertilizers are needed. Another major difference in the two is about their composition; organic manure has a variable composition of nutrients depending on the method of preparation and place of origin, but chemical fertilizers have a constant composition (e.g. Urea manufactured anywhere by any company has 46% nitrogen).
