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) for soil health.
- 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!
