Title: The Farmer’s Earthworm Handbook
Author: David Ernst
Blurb: There are hundreds of reasons for farmers to learn all they can about how to encourage the growth of earthworms in their soils. Learn how earthworms can help you save on tillage, fertilizer and chemical expenses as well as prevent costly soil erosion and groundwater contamination. These underground money-makers allow more air and water into the soil, improve fertility, and help roots grow deeper for increased crop productivity. David Ernst has written some 19 chapters on all aspects of on-farm earthworm management â€“ seeding fields with nightcrawlers, earthworm-friendly fertilization and pesticide application, manure management, sustainable agriculture, tillage systems, cover crops, crop rotations, and the major benefits of increasing worm numbers in your fields. This is a book you’ll refer to again and again to better manage your under-ground profit builders.
