Astonishing Annelids

Do worm castings affect the growth of plants? I am interested in worms and how they can affect agriculture. The plants with worm castings grew significantly faster, and the soil was healthier. Because the health of soil leads to a higher carbon retainment, worm castings are useful for carbon sequestration, as well as for limiting the use of chemical fertilizers that harm organisms in soil.
