IPCA has a vermicomposting centre in NOIDA. Organic waste such as left-over food, fruit and vegetable peels, etc collected from residential colonies, educational institutions and industries across Delhi/NCR is brought to the site. With the joint efforts of earthworms (Easinea foetida) and micro-organisms, the organic waste breaks down into a stable non-toxic material.
Our vermicompost has a good structure, potentially high value as soil conditioner and manure for plant growth. The NPK of compost is in the ratio of 1:2;1 along with other essential micro and macro nutrient. The best thing about compost is that it contain micro-organisms like rizzobium, which can fix free nitrogen to nitrate and act as phyto growth regulator.
