Abstract

Earthworms are well known for solid waste management as they can turn organic waste into gold through the process of vermicomposting. Vermicompost is an ecofriendly product of worm activity that is enriched with the mineral nutrients and Plant growth regulators, hence proved to be a potent biofertilizer for sustainable agriculture. It acts as good substitute for chemical fertilizer, improves soil qualities and reduces the requirement of growth regulators. Vermicomposting technology serves as boon for less-developed agricultural areas with low capital investment and can generates employment opportunities. This review paper highlights the effects of vermicompost on plant growth and development for sustainable agriculture.

Key Words
