Introduction
Aristotle called worms the “intestines of the earth” and stated that there may not be any other creature that has played so important a role in the history of life on earth. Earthworms constitute a large part of biomass (living bodies) inhabiting soil. In recent years efforts have been made to use the potential of earthworms in recycling of nutrients, waste management and development of vermicomposting systems at commercial scale. These are also called as “Ecosystem engineers” as they increase the numbers and types of microbes in the soil by creating conditions under which these creatures can thrive and multiply. The objective of this article is to present an overview of the vermicomposting technology.
