Abstract:

Enriched vermicompost preparation used Eisenia foetida vermiworm species and other additives (PSB, bacillus, rock phosphate) in it. The whole experiment was carried out at experimental station, Dr. RPCAU, Pusa and physical, chemical, enzymatic and biological properties were analyzed to ensure its quality aspect. Parameters like TN (Total nitrogen), TP (total phosphorus), TK (total potassium), MBP (Microbial biomass phosphorus), WSC(Water soluble carbon),HWSC(Hot water soluble carbon) and dehydrogenase activities increased from 0th day to 90 days of Vermicomposting where as maximum WHC (water holding capacity) slightly decreased in case of 50% HHW (Household waste) and 50% CD (Cow dung) combinations. The parameters such as BD (Bulk density), TOC (Total organic carbon), C: N ratio, MBN (Microbial biomass nitrogen), AHC (acid hydrolysable carbohydrate), KMnO4-Carbon, OC (Organic carbon) deceased from 0th day to 90th days of Vermicomposting. All functional indicators microbes (bacillus, pseudomonas, PSB, Starch hydrolyzing, cellulose hydrolyzing, azotobacter, azospirillum) and MBC (Microbial biomass carbon) increased from 0th day to 60th days of vemicomposting and later decreased from 60th days to 90th days of Vermicomposting. The recovery percentage was found highest (63.00%) in case of 50% HHW and 50% CD followed by 35% HHW and 65% CD (58.33%) combinations. Among all ratios of Vermicomposting 50% HHW and 50% CD combination excelled in all parameters.
