LOMBEC earthworm humus is an organic and ecological fertilizer, resulting from the transformation, by Californian Red Worms, of compost from natural manure fermented several times, in earthworm humus fully assimilable by plants. It is a 100% natural product. The EC regulation 834/2007 and 889/2008 qualifies it as an ecological product.
The production process of our vermicompost consists of passing organic matter (100% compost, from calf, sheep, rabbit, ...) through the intestinal tract of earthworms that provides microorganisms and ferments, and eliminates manure phytotoxicity (acidity, remnants of antibiotics, etc.).
The earthworm humus is dark brown, odorless and leaves no residue to the touch.
Lombec vermicompost is a high quality product, with a great organic richness, lacking phytotoxicity and very easy to handle.
The earthworm humus, as a solid organic fertilizer, eliminates unwanted characteristics in manure, as it neither ferments nor rots and has two clear advantages in relation to organic fertilizers: it is practically neutral (pH between 7.5 and 8.5) and contains abundant bacterial flora (billions of colonies per gram of product).
The neutral character of earthworm humus, the absence of phytotoxicity, and the abundance of its bacterial colonies make this product present the following properties:
We now know that the growing use of chemical fertilizers to increase the fertility of the land and its intensive use causes the impoverishment in organic matter of the soil, with loss of nutrients and constant reduction of soil reserves. This implies an alteration in the natural balance of the ground, which facilitates the crystallization of the surface layer and consequently hinders the filtration of water and the penetration of nutrients in the soil.
The importance of organic matter in arable land acquires increasing prominence because experts and especially farmers began to realize the risks involved in the indiscriminate and exclusive use of chemical fertilizers.
The use of vermicompost is a quick and easy way to restore organic matter to degraded soil and thereby increase its fertility, since earthworm humus:

*The bacterial colony, thanks to the humidity of the product, stimulates and accelerates the humification of the organic matter contributing more humic extract to the plant. The C/N ratio indicates that the product is very stabilized.
*The plant, in its most tender phase, finds food to start feeding.
*Good balance between the main nutrients, all of them organic.
*Good supply of calcium and also magnesium, both important ions for the correct development of many plants (especially the vineyard), on a neutral medium, to avoid their repulsion.
This product has a generalized application to all types of crops, since:
The worm casting Lombec can be applied directly in contact with the roots, without them being harmed because, from the first moment of the plantation, the roots benefit from the great concentration of bacterial colony that facilitates the transformation of the organic matter for its rapid assimilation by the plant, especially the youngest ones or those from transplantation.
The main fields of application are:
The application of the vermicompost is recommended in direct contact with the roots or as close as possible to these.
