The Farmer’s Earthworm Handbook

The Farmers Earthworm Handbook: Managing Your Underground Money-Makers, is about no-till farming, using earthworms to increase production in a cost-effective, sustainable and organic approach to raising crops that makes sense.

In the 20th Century, we learned so many ways to increase the quality of foods, by destroying pests with chemicals and pesticides, but yet these methods can be so detrimental to our environment as well as our own health; there are more profound ways to deal with healthy supply and healthy demand of agriculture, if only we look to natures stomach, worms.

Instead of tilling, why not let Mother Nature do the tilling? Treated properly, worm populations can do all the tilling the soil needs, helping roots expand and increasing yields dramatically throughout the season.

By simply providing food sources near the surface of the field regularly, the field is transformed into a giant vermicomposting operation, where the worms live in their natural habitat, till soil, produce quality worm castings right where the plants need them and help increase yields more than expensive fertilizers can.

Compost tea is an excellent alternative to pesticides and will not harm the worms or people, but will make bugs look to other places to feed.

Provide them with a place to escape the intense conditions above ground, yet a healthy food supply near the roots where their castings will do the most good, always in the same place, and you will be sure to create a worm-friendly crop that needs no-tilling.

This 112-page paperback, written by David Ernst, published by Lessiter in June of 1995, measuring 9 x 5.7 x 0.7, ships at only 7.2 ounces.

The Farmers Earthworm Handbook is a manual to help people make their crops more profitable by using earthworms to till and fertilize soil so that roots cangrow deeper, stronger and create some of the most dramatic yields ever.
