Abstract:
Field studies were carried out at S K N College of agriculture, Jobner, Rajasthan. The aim of this work was to study the effect of different organic wastes, viz. agricultural waste, vegetable waste, seasonal weed and litter fall with cow dung in various ratios (8:4, 8:5 and 8:6) on chemical properties of vermicompost at 10, 20 and 30 days interval of vermicomposting. Eisenia foetida an epigeic earthworm was used in experiment. Result revealed that substrates and ratio of organic substrate to cow dung, significantly influenced the chemical properties of vermicompost. The feeding material having vegetable waste in ratio of 8:6 gave highest total nitrogen, total phosphorus and total potassium content and lowest C:N ratio and PH. Whereas highest total organic carbon was obtained by vegetable waste in the ratio of 8:4.
