Physico-chemical parameters of vermicompost using Eisenia foetida in garden waste

Aparna Ektare and Dr. Ragini Didolkar

The use of earthworms for composting of organic matter has been known technology since many years. The earthworm species Eisenia foetida has been widely and commonly used for this purpose. Many factors such as, pH, moisture, carbon/nitrogen ratio determine the quality and rate of vermicompost. The agricultural wastes that amounts about fifty percent of organic matter can be easily degrade for sustainable agriculture. The modern vermicompost has developed techniques where any organic matter can be used for vermireactor. The present study was conducted using Eisenia foetida and caesin as biodegradable plastic in garden wastes considering the modern apparoach of vermicompost.
