Tripura, Oct 05 (ANI): This vermicompost micro unit at the Bamutia Kalibazar area of Tripura was setup by two educated youth under the banner of Naogaon Bamboo growers, with training and material support from the Centre for Forest Based Livelihoods and Extension. Vermicomposting is a simple process where special earthworms are used to turn organic wastes into high quality compost. The raw materials required for vermicompost are readily available in the rural areas and the process doesn't take much effort. The group is making good profit through this business and plans to start it on a commercial scale now. The Centre for Forest Based Livelihoods and Extension has been working in Tripura since 2012 for forest-based livelihood development and has now developed low cost vermicomposting technology. The primary objective of the project was to help rural youth set up micro-enterprises and also improve crop productivity by increasing soil fertility. The centre conducts training programme following which they provide the members with financial help for setting up of low-cost vermicompost unit. Each unit can produce an approximate quantity of around 400-450 kg of vermicompost every 45-60 days.
