Continuing its drive for environment friendly farming practices, PAT has been running demonstration and production of vermi-compost near Trichy. Vermicompost is an excellent substitute to chemical fertilizers for enriching the soil with nitrogen, which is essential for plant growth.
The additional advantage is that bio-degradable organic waste that poses hazard to both hygiene and climate is very usefully recycled . PAT continues its efforts to educate farmers to turn to vermicomposting so that they can produce valuable manure from the organic refuse from their own premises.
