The experiment was conducted to highlight the effect of increasing concentration of macro and micro-nutrients in soil by using plant residues along with Indian epigeic earthworm (Perionyx excavatus). The soil (1kg) collected from the different plant based agroforestry systems viz., Arecanut, Banana, bamboo and colocasia and mixed with specific residues to form a substrate. The worms experienced variation in the mortality rate, weight, production, number of hatchlings and fertility of the… CONTINUE READING
