vermi

Portable Vermi Compost beds have been developed to help farmers make their own organic compost. GCIL Vermi Bed are made of a seven layers proprietary polyolefin blend. It is light in weight but strong and durable. It is portable and been found to have a life of at least 3 years if provided a shade. The construction of the fabric have been specifically developed to  protect the vermi bed from constant UV exposure to strong heat and sunlight preventing it from degrading or deforming.

The net windows have been developed to provide aeration to the Earth Worms to maintain a proper balance of oxygen & moisture that helps keeping a controlled environment for healthier, faster and the best quality vermi compost.

The vermi compost made from our vermi bed makes the soil & crop completely free from chemicals and other harmful substances as compared to chemical fertilizers. It also enriches the soil and improves its fertility giving the farmer better yield of crop in a very eco friendly way.
