The Use of Earthworm Eudrilus eugeniae in the Breakdown and Management of Poultry Waste

  title={The Use of Earthworm Eudrilus eugeniae in the Breakdown and Management of Poultry Waste},
  author={Narayanan Natarajan and K. Nirmala Devi},
Pot culture experiments were done to process poultry waste mixed with bedding materials (Eichhornia crassipes and cow dung) in the ratio of 1:1:2, 1:2:1 and 2:1:1 using earthworm Eudrilus eugeniae. Totally there were three treatments (T1, T2 and T3) with three replicates for each. The raw poultry waste, predigested poultry waste and vermicompost were separately subjected to chemical nutrients composition analysis. The vermicompost had increased levels of total N, P, K and Ca when compared to… CONTINUE READING
