ANTIMICROBIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF VERMI WASHN. H. MENON, R. D. DHORE AND S. S. PANDE
Vermi wash is a liquid fertilizer collected after the passage of water through a column of earthworm culture. It is also defined as an extraction of coelomic fluid of earthworm along with its excretory products and micronutrients from soil organic molecules. Vermi wash is rich in nutrients, hormones, amino acid, vitamin, and enzymes. Thus spray of vermi wash on plants helps in good growth. Along with growth promoting characteristics it is also observed that microorganims never degrade vermi wash. No bacterial and fungal growth is seen on vermi wash. It may be due to some antimicrobial activity. So, work was conducted to detect the antimicrobial activity of vermi wash.
