Abstract/Contents:Addresses earthworm cast control, explaining that though earthworms may be an important aspect of healthy soil, earthworm casts are not aesthetically valued. Summarizes an approach for earthworm control invented by Peter Lees. Presents research conducted "to facilitate development of a natural product that can be used to alleviate the problem of excessive earthworm castings on golf courses and sports fields." Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that "tea seed meal [was studied] in autumn 2007 to determine whether it could be used to reduce earthworm casts on playing surfaces." Reports that "this research indicates that tea seed meal...is effective for expelling earthworms and suppressing casting on playing surfaces."
