VERMICOMPOSTING WITH THE EARTHWORM EISENIA WITH VARIOUS ORGANIC MATERIALS
Aim of the study is to learn more about vermicomposting process, which includes steps like building a station for vermicompost, importing an earthworm for compost (Eisenia), as well as producing vermicompost from dry grass clippings, cow manure, as well as rice straw. The vermicompost created is of tremendous benefit to ultimate user such as farmer, who can use it to substitute chemical fertilisers and get best price for organic produces by utilizing locally available composting materials. Eisenia is used for vermicomposting with three different treatments: grass, rice straw grass, and rice straw. During the process, the pH, humidity, and temperature are all recorded. After two (02) and four (04) months. Sigma Plot 12.0 is used to perform statistical analysis on the results. The temperature is in the range of 1–36 °C for all three therapies, the humidity is between 79.5 to 99.5 percent, as well as the pH fluctuated between 5.5–7.5 before stabilising upon 59th day. Mixture of the rice straw as well as the grass produced the most vermicompost (105 kg/m2), followed by grass (102.5 kg/m2) and rice straw (87 kg/m2).
