JL Organics was happy to work with students from University of California in an agricultural study. UC Riverside PhD student Abira S. performed and documented tests on tomato plants with root knot nematode (meloidogyne incognita) infestations to see how they responded to Vermisterra.Sounds gnarly right? Abira found that using Vermisterra tea (labeled vermicompost tea in his study) suppressed root knot nematodes. Plants that received the worm casting tea also had more leaves, greater dry weight, more vegetative and fruiting branches, and significant increase in fruit number and fruit size compared to controls.
