A field experiment was conducted during rabi season 2014-15 at the research farm of soil science, Allahabad School of Agriculture, laid out in randomized block design on sandy loam soil, containing sand 65.14%, silt 21.12%, and clay 13.74% (Inceptisols). It was observed that for post-harvest soil properties in treatment N80P60K40 + vermicompost @ 10 t ha-1 were improved significantly due to organic and inorganic use of inputs. Organic carban 0.67%, available nitrogen 309.83 kg ha-1, phosphorus 28.98 kg ha-1, potassium 188.11 kg ha-1, pore space 50.14%, pH 7.17 were found to be significant and bulk density 1.22 Mgm-3, particle density 2.31 Mgm-3, EC at 0.24 dSm-1 were found to be non-significantly improved in this treatment.

Keywords: Soil properties, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Soil.
