Abstract:

Field experiments was conducted during 2015 on clay loam, sandy loam soil evaluate “to study the Effect of different levels of NPK and Vermicompost on physico-chemical properties of soil” comparison to inorganic fertilizers nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium. Vermicompost had increased the pore space, reduced particle and bulk density, increased water holding capacity, cation exchange capacity, reduced pH and electrical conductivity, increased organic carbon content, available nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and microbial population and activity in all the soil types, particularly clay loam soil. On the contrary, the application of inorganic fertilizers has resulted in reduced porosity, compaction of soil, reduced organic carbon and reduced microbial activity. As for soil amendment and soil quality improvement, the application of NPK with vermicompost was excellent source to fertilization than fertilizers only in soil.


Keywords: Soil properties, Nutrients sources, NPK and Vermicompost content, Maize etc.
