That they are rich in nitrogen, which is an essential plant nutrient, is the reason why waste products can be used to help grow plants.

Specifically, among the most effective waste products are those from such soil food web members are earthworms. Nitrogen tends to be readily present in the soil, but not often available to plants. It only is available for intake by plant roots if it is in soluble form. Soil food web members such as earthworms take in nitrogen, which is eliminated in soluble form due to processing inside the worm's body.
