Sustainable soil management includes use of more organic fertilisers, like, vermi compost, which is becoming popular in Bangladesh now. Women can be involved in the production of vermi compost or simple organic compost type fertilisers, which will maintain the health of the soil.

More training can be organised for women for production of vermi compost and other compost type organic fertilisers. On the other hand vermi compost is more suitable for household vegetable cultivation, which is again handled by women.
