Worm Casting Application Methods and Impact on Cabbage Yield

Published Dec 4, 2014

Worm castings, or vermicompost, are a common addition to potting soil mix and greenhouse bedding, and are recommended for use with nearly any plant. Castings can be added at seeding or transplant, used to side-dress during the growing season, incorporated to compost piles or vegetable beds, or steeped as a compost tea and added during watering or as a foliar spray. The objectives of this project were to determine whether casting additions or application method increased yield of fall cabbage. While differences are seen with other plants in the literature, no differences were seen here.
