To Find the Rapid Method of Vermicomposting
Vermicomposting is the scientific method of making compost by using earthworms. It is the cheap and effortless way for producing the organic compost. vermicompost is a backbone for enhancing the organic movement. the research was carried out in the kapilvastu district Nepal under the direction of Dr. Deepak kholiya (A professor of Graphic era hill university).to see the rapid method of vermicomposting and to use animal waste such as cow dung in the effective manner. Eisenia foetida an species of earthworm was used for the conversion of animal waste into the compost. In research we used two methods of vermicomposting i.e.,1. Pit method of size 5*5*3 feet 2. Bed method of size 6*2*2 feet. 200earthworms of same size were introduced in the both methods i.e., body length 3-10 cm body weight 0.4 to0.6 g. The substrate used in vermicomposting is rice straw along with chopped vegetable waste are mixed with the cow dung. Vermicompost sample of both methods are collected. Compost from bed method was collected after 60 days (about 2 months) and pit method was collected after 30-35 days (about 1 month 4 and a half days). both the vermicompost sample were high in nutrient content.
