Large-scale worm casting production.
There is a digestion system in an earthworm.
The process of nutrition begins in the mouth, where food is sucked in by a muscular pharynx.
From there, food goes down the esophagus through peristalsis (visceral muscle contractions.)
After this, the food is stored in the crop, which retains food and has the ability to expand.
From there, food goes into the gizzard where sand and muscular contractions churn the food and increase the surface area.
From there, food enters the intestine which has the ability to absorb food, then food exits through the anus.
A rectum is unnecessary because an earthworm is in a moist environment and thus does not require water reclamation.
