What is Biocast?
Biocast is a liquid vermicast biostimulant. What that means is that we’ve extracted our high-quality worm poo (cast) into water, and with it all the life-stimulating compounds produced by the worm and associated microbes. These include living microbes (bacteria, fungal spores, and protozoa), growth-stimulating hormones, enzymes, autoinducers (signalling molecules), fulvic acid and trace minerals. These all work together to benefit plants and soil life. Biocast can be applied as a foliar, seed dressing, transplant drench or through fertigation systems.
