Please share your experiences with us – we are keen to learn how you successfully use MyNoke Earthworm products.

MyNoke Vermicast contains:

  • Beneficial soil microorganisms – bacteria, fungi, mycorrhiza, protozoa (flagellates, amoebae, ciliates).
  • Plant growth bio stimulants – cytokinins, gibberellins, auxins and indole-3-acetic acid (IAA).
  • IAA is proven to be effective in repelling insects such as caterpillars and aphids. At the same time, it attracts pollinators.
  • Gibberellins and auxins boost root growth and activity. This increases nutrient uptake and provides plants with greater access to water in the root zone.
  • MyNoke Vermicast meets the New Zealand Standards for Composts, Soil Conditioners and Mulches; NZS4454:2005.

MyNoke Vermicast products contain pure, mature earthworm castings only. None of our products contain bulking agents such as bark or sawdust – earthworms cannot eat timber!
