Can earthworms be the most recent addition to the manure manager’s toolbox? Does this approach to manure management bring with it the possibility of carbon credits? Come join us to hear about the science and economics behind the use of worms in the processes of composting (i.e., vermicomposting) and treatment of wastewater and manure liquid waste stream (vermifiltration). The benefits you will hear about are: ammonia and greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions reduction, reduction of nutrient and organic loads in the liquid waste stream, and generation of a valuable soil amendment product and carbon credits.
