Present investigations were carried out during 1998-2000 at Shivri farm of Uttar Pradesh Bhumi Sudhar Nigam, Lucknow, India, to study the effect of vermicompost application in reclaimed sodic soils on the productivity of potato (Solanum tuberosum), spinach (Spinacia oleracea) and turnip (Brassica campestris). The soil quality was monitored during the experiment followed by productivity. The treatments were 4, 5 and 6 tonnes/ha of vermicompost as soil application in plots already reclaimed by…

Evaluation of the use of vermicompost on the crop production of two varieties of Pak choi (Brassica rapa var. chinensis) and on the soil structure in Suriname

Evaluated plants treated with vermicompost had similar results as those treated with cow manure and chemical fertilizer and the soil parameters did not indicate a significant increase or decrease of the elements in the soil.

EFFECT OF VERMIWASH AND VERMICOMPOST OF EUDRILUS EUGENIAE ON THE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF LEAVES AND STEM OF BRINJAL PLANT (SOLANUM MELONGENA)

It can be concluded that the effect of vermiwash and vermicompost on the growth and development of leaves and stem of brinjal plants is more significant in comparison to control (soil and dung only).

COMPARISON OF VERMICOMPOST AND LEAF MOLD ON THE GROWTH AND YIELD OF CAPSICUM ANNUUM L.VAR. FRUTESCENS (L.) KUNTZE

Based on the various biochemical studies performed it is concluded that this quality of bio solid vermicompost obtained from the degradation of banana wastes by Eudriluseugeniae is an effective biofertilizer which would facilitate the increased uptake of the nutrients by the plants resulting in higher growth and yield.

Field investigation was carried out to study the effect of organic and biofertilizers on growth and yield parameters in potato cultivar Kufri Chipsona-3 at School of Agriculture and Environmental

Studies on the Effects of Vermicompost on Growth Parameters and Chlorophyll Content of Bengal Gram (Cicer arietinum L.) var. RSG-896

The present field experiment was performed in the farmer’s field located in Bambala, TehsilSanganer, Jaipur to determine the effects of vermicompost on Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum L.) var. RSG-896.

Effect of Vermicompost and Compound inorganic Fertilizer on Soil Phosphate Availability and Yield of Potatoes (Solanum tuberosum L.) Grown in Andisols

Potatoes (Solanum tuberosum L.) which are comonly grown  in the highland with Andisols require organic and inorganic fertilizers to maintain soil health  and increase yield. The purpose of field

Effect of different vermicomposts and bioslurry on growth, yield and postharvest quality of statice

An experiment at Egerton University in Kenya studied effects of vermicomposts and bioslurry on growth, yield and postharvest quality in statice and showed significant differences at P≤0.05 between treatments.

Effect of Vermicompost on Growth, Yield and Quality of Vegetable Crops

Vermicomposting is a promising method of transforming unwanted and virtually unlimited supplies of organic wastes into usable substrates. In this process, the digestive tracts of certain earthworm

EFFECT OF VERMIWASH ON THE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF LEAVES AND STEM OF TOMATO PLANTS

Vermiwash is the organic fertilizer obtained from units of vermiculture and vermicompost as drainage. It is used both as foliar spray and in the root zone of plant. Our study examines the effect of

Response of Ethiopian Mustard (Brassica carinata A. Braun) to Different Levels of Vermicompost in North East, Botswana

Investigation of the response of Ethiopian mustard to different levels of vermicompost suggests that level 75% VC can be used in a potting medium when growing Ethiopian mustard as a leafy vegetable.
