Abstract

A field experiment was conducted in red lateritic soil during kharif seasons of 1998 and 1999 to study the utility of different sources of vermicompost and its nutrient status on the growth and yield of groundnut. Among the various sources of vermicompost, ornamental garden waste vermicompost application performed superior over other sources viz., organic waste, common weed biomass, water hyacinth, chopped young Prosopis juliflora, coirpith and FYM. The enhanced growth and yield of groundnut due to application of organic waste vermicompost was at par with ornamental garden waste vermicompost.
