Effect of leaf litter, vegetable waste, coffee waste, flower waste and may flower waste added vermicompost on weight gain in Eudrilus eugeniae

Soil organisms are essential for nutrient cycling and organic matter turn over, thereby functioning as key determinants of soil fertility and nutrient uptake by plants. Rapid urbanization, industrialization, unplanned population growth, misuse and abuse of the environment have led to an increased accumulation of solid waste materials. This, not only reduces available fertile land, but also pollutes air, water and soil. It also causes social, ecological, aesthetic and economic problems having negative impact on human health and quality of life. Due to lack of financial resources more than 90% of solid waste is deposited off on land in an indiscriminate manner posing significant hazards to the environment. The present work aims at studying the growth of worm with the help of various wastes.
