    Abstract :

    Vermicompost is formed by decomposition of organic waste by the help of Earthworms and microbes. The advantage of using Vermicompost in Soil is that it improves Soil Physical, Chemical and Biological Characteristics. The addition of Vermicompost increases porosity, Water holding capacity. The present papers aims to identify the vermicompost that may better promote or aid plant growth based on the study of analysis of chemical characteristics of vermicompost prepared from Eisenia fetida and Jai Gopal (Perionyx ceylanesis). The findings of this paper showed that vermicompost prepared from Jai Gopal (Perionyx ceylanesis) is found to be better than vermicompost of Eisenia fetida as the soil parameters required for good plant growth are more prominent in vermicompost of Jai Gopal (Perionyx ceylanesis).
