Adaptive Earthworms On The Thousand Islands And Its Development Strategy

Jakarta - Based on the results of a survey of the potential of previous organic waste, BPTP Jakarta together with women groups located in the Thousand Islands region, had the opportunity to study a waste processing technique that is considered more practical to be applied in the local area. This activity is still limited to the island of Pramuka and Panggang only. Some composting procedures are in the process of application, one of which is the composting process by utilizing earthworms.

The type of earthworms this time introduced in composting techniques in the Thousand Islands is Eiseniafetida. This worm is also known as istiah red worms or tiger worms because of its reddish-brown body with a bright segment, and at the tip of the tail yellowish.

At the beginning of the activity there is little concern that this worm can not survive in the Thousand Islands environment that is rated at a relatively higher temperature. But after a 1-month incubation period it appears that the worm is alive and growing, it can even produce vermicomposts well. According to some study participants (Ibu Mariah from the Scout Island Tourism group and Ibu Yani from PKK Island Panggang), a week after the initial incubation period the vermicompos was well established. Every 1 kg of worms is reported to degrade organic waste as much as 0.5 kg, and produce vermicomposts ranging from 2 to 3 kg. Thus this vermicompost has great potential to be a breakthrough in organic waste management efforts in the Thousand Islands.
