ABOUT THE WORM HIT COMPANY.
The original founders of Worm Hit identified worm castings as the organic powerhouse fertiliser of the future and began investigating in a solution to the application challenges of this amazing, natural product. Through intensive research, production trials and testing, the team was able to develop a unique system enabling them to both pelletise the castings and form them into compacted bricks.
Operating from their Mildura-based Production Facility in 2015, the company began an extensive research and development phase, testing and trialing the product on various commercially produced crops. The highly successful trials led to both Worm Hit Pellets and Worm Hit Bricks being commercially available for sale in 2017.
The Company's vision focused on creating a more sustainable agricultural system. We aim to contribute to this vision by more sustainable, natural farming practices and the reduction of inorganic, unsustainable fertilisers.
Early trials produced improvements to the root growth of all plants and crops with worm castings. The data showed changes to the soil structure with less compaction and a more friable soil for successful plant growth. The trials on cereal crops proved even more exciting when farmers started returning better yields. After further intensive research, production trials and testing, the team was able to develop a unique system enabling them to both pelletise the castings, plus form them into compacted bricks. This would enable farmers and gardeners to organically fertilise their soil with existing equipment, eliminating the need to change existing work practices.
In 2015, the company Worm Hit began to turn the humble worm castings into the powerhouse organic fertiliser that can easily applied by farmers and gardeners to grow their crops and plants. The highly successful trials led to both Worm Hit Pellets and Bricks being commercially available for sale in 2017. This allowed the Company's vision, to focus on helping to create a healthier world, not only for the environment but everything living in it, to be readily available to the public at an affordable price.
Worm Hit turns a mixture of worm castings and a carbon food source into a pelletised form, creating one of the richest natural fertilisers on the planet.
