Why The Earthworms Is Important To The Soil And Why They Always Present In The Soil.

Earthworms make tunnels in the soil while moving through it. These tunnels allow air and water to get to the roots of plants. As earthworms live their lives in the soil, they eat organic matter, such as dead leaves, grass clippings, and even dirt. After they digest this organic matter, they produce excrement, known as 'castings'. These wastes of an earthworm are rich in phosphorus, calcium, nitrogen, and magnesium. All these nutrients enrich the soil, and help garden plants grow and stay healthy.
