It comprises a massive decomposer bacteria count, mucus, vitamins, different bioavailable minerals, hormones, enzymes, different antimicrobial peptides, etc. This paper aimed to assess how these natural products in vermiwash enhances plant growth. Earthworms establish symbiotic relationship with microbes, produce an essential product that supports the growth of plants, and suppress plant's root disease.
