Explain your idea in details:
The strategy behind this idea is to read worms for both commercial and domestic uses. It requires a plot of land in a good location that is always moist. Different types a d sizes of worms particularly earth worms will be introduced into this land to feed and multiply greatly. This worms after having matured will be sold to governments and farmers particularly those into crop production in good quantities to introduce into their land where their massive waste are stored and foe farmers- crops grown.This worms will dwell and feed on animal dung and compost manure in the soil and fix up or loosen the soil to enhance fertility by making the nutrients readily available for plant growth while feeding on the land for food. On the land waste, It will serve as a decomposed gradually feeding on waste and helping decomposition of matter which after a long period of time, crude oil could be discovered. The worms when used in crop production helps plant release more oxygen for human use which promotes green house. The worms can be milled into powder or shredded like minced meat which will be sold poultry and fish farmers as a source of feed for their fishes of all specie.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
This idea is expected to boost the fertility of the soil such that when crops and livestocks are grown, they grow well. Well grown crops will promote photosynthesis as plants will produce more oxygen and sufficient oxygen in the air will help fix climate problems enhance waste management issues as the waste are being recycled a long with bacterial and fungus which turns to fossils which can cause crude oil production and help maintain the ecosystem. Earthworms helps to increase the amount of air and water that enters the soil. Casting ( waste from earthworms) is a good fertilizer for crop production.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
It a lucrative business that requires no much capital. It will require a plot of land, good supply of weeds and dead organic matter as a starter then later compost manure for the worms to feed on when introduced. The worms will be fed according to their quantity. The more the worms, the more the feed. I hope to get finance from this competition, the ministry of agriculture and other agro business owners to invest in the idea.
My name is Onwuemenyi Nnebueze Emmanuella though I prefer to be called ellanwa. I was born June 22 199_. I grew up with ideas but never a platform to actualize it. People don't want people to grow much less women. My dream to give back to the world is what drives me. The longing to promote gender equality has kept me going. I haven't achieved national success but my self success is a starter for me. My awards are nothing to talk about as I consider them as a reminder that TITLE means Till I Totally Lead Everyone, Their Innovative Talents leaves Everyday. This is when I choose to be recognized.
