Abstract

ABSTRACT The proposed investigation is designed to elicit a detailed study on Nutrient changes during vermicomposting of house hold kitchen wastes by Eisenia fetida. Vermicomposting is the eco-friendly technology to accomplish the conversion of organic wastes into natural manure. Vermicomposting has been proposed as an alternate method of transforming house hold kitchen waste into useful compost. The kitchen waste processed by Eisenia fetida were analysed for carbon, total nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium every 10 days for a total period of 40 days and compared with the same in absence of earthworms. The carbon content decreased and the nitrogen, phosphorus and calcium content increased during the process of vermicomposting. The magnesium level reminds almost static during composting of kitchen waste with or without earthworms.
