Vermicompost Business: Dr. Shravan Yadav gives free training to farmers to make vermicompost
In the last two years, about 40 thousand youths have been given training to make vermicompost.
Earthworm Manure/Vermicompost | Due to high production, chemical pesticides, and fertilizers have been used rapidly in the last few decades. Its effect is slowly showing in the form of the poor health of the environment and humans. This is why people are gradually demanding organic things, and farmers are also adopting organic farming. But to get good production from organic farming, the manure must also be wholly organic and nutritious. One such fertilizer is earthworm manure.
Vermicompost is the best organic fertilizer prepared with the help of kitchen, animal farm waste, and earthworms. By adopting Vermicompost as a business where the youth can earn a lot of profit, the need for the farmers’ fertilizer will also be fulfilled, but for this, the youth must know the right way of making Vermicompost.
In this situation, Dr. Shravan Kumar Yadav is helping him. In the last two years, he has trained about 40 thousand youths to make vermicompost. These youngsters are now running their own Vermicompost business. Dr. Shravan Kumar gives free training to the youth on the 25th of every month.
