Sinha et al. Plants that have died in the field conditions were dry and yellow, which is due to direct contact with the sun. Effect of vermicompost on the quality properties: The addition of Vermicompost to soil has not significant effects on total soluble solids TSStitratable acidity TA and pH of juice Table 3.
Vermicomposts are finely divided, peat-like materials produced through a non-thermophilic process involving the biodegradation and stabilization of organic materials through interactions between earthworms and microorganisms Edwards and Burrows, The use of organic farming with organic amendments as nutrient inputs to the soil is currently increasing, and organic farming is becoming an alternative agricultural practice to sustain economical vegetable production with minimal environmental pollution and higher fruit quality.
In plants treated with earthworm cast, the growth parameters of Triticum aesticum such as plant height, number of leaves and tillers, early ear heading, ear head length and dry matter per plant was found to be enhanced than the control plants Nijhawan and Kanwar J Biol Sci 14 8 — T3 had the highest root and shoot weight, which is probably due to the high phosphorus level present in the soil.
Chemical fertilizers have proven to have a better effect on fruit weight and fruit yield in this study. Soil Biol Biochem —
