Abstract:

In today’s era, heavy doses of chemical fertilizers and pesticides are being used by the farmers to get a better yield of various field crops. These chemical fertilizers and pesticides decreased soil fertility and caused health problems to the consumers. The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of vermicompost and their biproduct vermicompost rubbish on growth and yield of tomato on various time durations. Physico-chemical properties of the soil in both control and experimental plots were studied and interrupted with results. Plant growth (height), number leaves per plant, number of flower and fruits were also recorded. 50:50 ratio vermicompost and vermicompost rubbish applied plats showed increased growth, number of leaves, flower and fruits when compared to control other ratios (40:60 and 60:40) of vermi end products. Significant yield was recorded on vermicompost applied plants than vermicompost rubbish, that vermicompost is more favorable for vital production of tomato. The vermi end products can be economically and environmentally suitable and also maintenance of agricultural soil environment.
