Abstract:

The present study was to determine the conversion of six different solid waste materials viz. kitchen waste, paddy straw, leaf litters, Azolla plant, Cyathula plant and mixed sawdust from local mills into vermicompost and their yield potential by using earthworm species Eisenia foetida. 5 kg dry weight of each waste material were mixed with cow dung and allowed to undergo decomposition. The maximum yield of vermicompost were recorded from the leaf litters (3.937 kg dry wt.) followed by Azolla plant (3.655 kg dry wt.). The lowest vermicompost yield was recorded from Cyathula plant (2.387 kg dry wt.) respectively.
