Abstract:

Organic wastes returned to the soil can maintain and enhance soil quality, fertility and productivity through favourable effect on soil properties and other processes. Vermicompost technology for composting of organic wastes is remarkably effective for reduction in the processing time of decomposition and produce food quality compost in terms of nutrients. It serves as an important component of integrated plant nutrient supply system for balanced fertilization along with maintaining health to sustain the productivity of soils. Organic wastes returned to soil as vermicompost contribute to reduce the fertilizer requirement of crop. Beneficial effects of vermicompost on yield and quality of crop are highlighted in the article.
