Earthworm Watch infographic
New results from Earthworm Watch released
As autumn rolls in and we prepare for the new earthworm season, we’d like to thank all our Earthworm Watchers for their contributions to our previous data collection stint.
Thanks to you, we have some great findings and statistics to report, all of which can be seen in our nifty infographic below. One of the most interesting outcomes was that, regardless of habitat type, areas which had been treated with organic fertilisers such as manure or compost were found to have 50% more earthworms than those without fertiliser, but this effect was not seen with the use of artificial fertilisers.
