After discovering the amazing gardening power of Superworm Frass, we here at Frass Valley wanted to share our discovery with other green minds of the world. Frass Valley is a sustainable project that recycles waste from insects and processes it into a high quality organic fertilizer known as Frass. We source our Frass from millions of tropical insects called Superworms. Superworm Frass is similar to earthworm castings, except it contains a large number of benefits that earthworm castings don't. Frass contains an organic plant enhancer known as Chitin. Chitin is a natural polymer that kicks a plants immune system into high gear when Frass is introduced into the soil. When plants detect an abundance of Frass in their environment, they assume that they are being eaten by insects and literally grow for their lives. And Superworm Frass contains the highest Chitin levels of any farmed insect! Ours tops the charts at 16.9%!!! It also acts as a great fungal inoculent, effectively stimulating the development of mycorrhizal fungi throughout the soil. 80-90% of all plants depend on a symbiotic relationship with mycorrhizal fungi. Superworm Frass also acts as an organic pesticide, helping deter fungal gnats and grubs as well as root-feeding nematodes from the soil.
