Title: Antifungal Activity of Reworks Wormcast
Author: Hsiang, T; Tian, L
Department: School of Environmental Sciences
Abstract: The purpose of this research is to investigate the effects of wormcast on several major turfgrass fungal pathogens as well as examining the microbial populations and antifungal volatile substances produced by wormcast. Forterra (formerly Reworks) has a vermiculture processing plant in Downsview,Ontario, which feeds vegetable and plant refuse in a proprietary system to produce wormcast. Wormcast was collected at the Downsview site on 24 January 2007, and stored at 4C, with the first tests started within one week of collection. Another set of wormcast was obtained in fall 2006 (manufactured Oct 2006). The old wormcast had been stored at room temperature before the start of these experiments.
