Abstract:
ABSTRACT Reprocess agricultural crop residue to vermicomposts and vermiwash provide a good option for small and marginal farmers to produce solid and liquid organic manure locally for use in their farms. Vermicomposting is a mesophilic process and should be maintained up to 32°C with the moisture content of 60-80%. Earthworms break down organic matter and leave behind castings that are an exceptionally valuable fertilizer. Vermicompost and vermiwash are well known to get better soil health and fertility as they add major and micro nutrients, organic matter, and plant growth promoting substances besides improving the soil construction. However, not much known but uniformly critical is the ability of vermicomposts and vermiwash to add considerable load of plant-beneficial microbial communities to the soil that play an chief role in augment the soil microbial diversity, nutrient mineralization, pathogen/nematode suppression and organic matter degradation resulting in better soil battle and pliability. More importantly, addition of the vermicomposts and vermiwash provides much needed food for the microorganisms in soil thereby stimulating their activities that is necessary for a soil to be fit for supporting good crop growth. Keywords: Agriculture Waste, Earthworm, Cow Dung, Organic manure, Plant Growth
