Research conducted at respected agricultural universities* indicate vermicompost’s remarkable contributions to soil fertility and plant health. Foliar fungal disease control has been observed as an effect of vermicompost tea application. The leading technology for high potency vermicompost production is based on a two-phase composting sequence. Vermicompost tea is produced in a customized brewer that features intense aeration and temperature moderation.  A sachet containing vermicompost and food sources for microbial growth is introduced in to the brewer and subjected to aeration and agitation for about twenty-four hours. Extract is prepared by a passive steeping process without the aeration or addition of microbial foods. Pumped through drip irrigation systems for precision application to the plant root zones.
The Foundation employs more than 400 full-time workers comprising over 40 professionally qualified post graduates, over 70 graduates, and a large number of well-trained extension workers in Agriculture Biotechnology and organic agriculture. Today the foundation is providing vermiculture know-how to over 300 Agripreneurs every year in India.
The foundation claims it can deliver up to 500 metric tons of vermicompost in a single lot from over 50 locations in India. For pest control, the foundation has developed enriched vermicompost, probiotic applications for organic agriculture. A book with the title “Vermiculture: A Complete Guide” written in the Hindi language by the Foundation’s Executive Director, Mukesh Gupta, has become the first book published on the subject by the foundation. According to it website, “The Foundation with its involvement in biotechnology has successfully developed solid waste management technologies for converting household and segregated city waste to organic manure through a process of sanitization, deodorization and accelerated decomposition.” The Ministry of Urban Development and Poverty Alleviation recently listed Morarka Foundation to provide know-how for conversion of city waste into vermicompost under Supreme Court direction for all municipal towns having more than 1,000,000 in population as an “Appropriate Technology On Solid Waste Management.
On July 2, 2004 VermiCo Director Peter Bogdanov visited the 20-acre Jaipur complex where Executive Director Mukesh Gupta explained how vermiculture is practiced in India.
In Jaipur, a city of 2,324,319 (2001 census), like many cities in India, there is no organized public program for waste management. I am interested in making vermicompost, making organic farm with different plant , grain, and seed products , fruits and etc…. I would like to become familiar with your research cenre and foundation , lean the technique for making organic farm by using vermicompost, in Iran.
The foundation you must contact directly with your request is the Morarka Foundation in Jaipur with whom we have no current affiliation.
Can you please inform me that next work shop for vermi compost production in small scale and large scale.


With abundant cowdung availability, We have started a small vermi composting unit in our locality. I have stated Vermicomposting using vegetable waste in my house, i am very much interested in getting complete information about vermicomposting, so that i can start it on large scale. We have no con­ducted a sem­i­nar for some time and, at present, have no imme­di­ate plans for one. Thanks for your response, actually i want to know and see your vermicomposting unit, will you permit me to visit your unit.
Vermicompost can be applied as a top dressing, as a planting amendment, as a blend with standard compost, and as a seed starting mix ingredient. The process results in a biologically dynamic soil amendment richly diverse and dense with populations of beneficial bacteria, fungi, and microfauna. Phase I produces worm feedstock by a high temperature, aerobic composting method that favors thermophilic micro-organisms while killing unwanted pathogens and weed seeds. The result is a solution that teems with dense and diverse populations of microbes and fungi. The result is a shelf stable solution that delivers many of vermicompost’s benefits albeit with much less impact than the tea. Starting from Nawalgarh in 1993, the foundation has expanded within the state of Rajasthan [its headquarters are located in the “Pink City” of Jaipur] and now has a field presence in all agro-climatic zones of the country spread over 19 States and 3 Union Territories. Foundation affiliates produce over 50,000 metric tons (1 metric ton is = 1,000 kilograms = 2,200 lbs.) of vermicompost every month [thus, 50,000 x 2,200 = 110 million pounds] and has over 100,000 hectares of land under Certified Organic Cultivation. It also claims it can deliver up to 10,000 kg [22,000 lbs.] Eisenia fetida earthworms in a single lot from over 10 locations in India.
Morarka Foundation was awarded a gold medal for “Excellence in Technology Innovation” at the India International Trade Fair in New Delhi.
Gupta’s educational background includes a degree in agriculture engineering followed by a master’s in business administration.
In order to obtain feedstocks for earthworms, the Morarka foundation is responsible for pick-up and delivery of organic waste products, such as animal dung in streets and dairies, and food waste. We would like to develop the current system to utilize biodegradable waste using vermi-compositng operation.
How­ever, your best bet is to obtain our Best Man­age­ment Prac­tices in Ver­mi­com­post­ing Man­ual which is the chief resource of our seminars.
In Phase II the feedstock is loaded into shallow, “continuous-flow” beds where feasting earthworms produce vermicompost on an uninterrupted basis.


The product must be used immediately to exploit peak micro-organism activity; it has a brief shelf life.
It can be used as the main ingredient for tea in lieu of particulate vermicompost, resulting in a solution that is free from residual sludge. For a time he worked for a pesticide manufacturer but then turned toward specializing in the recovery of failing businesses.
About 100 tons of vegetative waste is generated per day in Jaipur, half of which is delivered to the foundation.
Farmers who begin vermicomposting organic material for use on their own fields are supplied earthworms free of cost. Although Executive Director Gupta is a member of various state and regional committees that have discussed payment for waste management services, no decisions have been made. The Morarka Foundation seeks to bring together a wide variety of interested parties in the areas of organic farming and certification, agriculture extension, tourism promotion, waste management, vermicomposting, and the conservation of India’s heritage. This amount, divided by 6 cycles, (which he would do in a year), is about 330 kilograms per cycle, requiring an average of 20 kg of worms per running foot.
There have been some private industries and townships, however, that have contracted with Morarka for consultation on handling waste.
The foundation has a very strong focus in carrying out research by involving grass root beneficiaries for sustainable agriculture development. But in reality farmers are able to sell their worm castings at a much higher rate than we will pay them. At one time the government of India explored the possibility of recycling its cotton-fiber currency through Morarka’s technology, but later backed out of the proposal.
The water requirement for vermicomposting is one liter per linear foot, so only 20 liters of water [per day] are needed. As for biosolids from wastewater treatment, no program currently exists for processing this material through vermicomposting.
