In my current location there are insect farmers, mushroom farmers, shrimp farmers, and wild crayfish.
Vermiculture is something a small farm can easily do.
So should we be producing castings to maximize chitnase?

As chitin is a component of the cell walls of fungi and exoskeletal elements of some animals (including worms and arthropods), chitinases are generally found in organisms that either need to reshape their own chitin[2] or dissolve and digest the chitin of fungi or animals.

In 2014, group of friends took off to the heart of the Rust Belt, in Youngstown, Ohio. There, inspired by the success of Thailand’s edible insect farming program at lifting people from poverty, Big Cricket Farms formally began operations.

EnviroFlight uses the co-product from breweries, ethanol production, and pre-consumer food waste as a feedstock for Black Soldier Fly larvae (Hermetia illucens), a non pathogenic insect.
