Earthworms are called a farmer’s friend. Do you know why?

Your friend is correct,

Earthworm are called friends of farmer because  :

  • Earthworm moves through the soil that loosens and aerates the soil. This also helps the water to reach the roots quickly.
  • Earthworm 's excreta increases the fertility of the soil. 
  • After their death, they get decomposed and add humus to the soil.

Earthworms are called farmers friend since it ploughs the soil and keeps on turning out earth from below and also manures the soil. It is a nocturnal animal and during the day time it remains active in the burrows with its anterior end facing upwards.

Usually the earthworm comes out of the burrow at night and moves in search of food which consists of decaying vegetable and animal matters.

The undigested matter with urea comes out of the anus in the form of "worm castings" which enrich the soil with nitrogen, hence earthworms are called Friend of the farmer.
