Production of Vermi Compost from Organic Waste: A Review
AbstractGeneration of the huge amount of organic waste around the world-wide is a major ecological issue. When these organic wastes are recycled as manure for crop production & are subjected to the degradation & assimilative capacity of soil, pollution of streams & rivers receiving these wastes is reduced to a large extent as compared to the direct disposal in water bodies. Utilization of these organic wastes for productivity process is important for economic & environmental reasons. Vermicomposting may be the viable option to handle solid waste. This review provides a general overview of viability of vermicomposting processes as an ecofriendly approach. The approach is based on that perception that tomorrowâ€™s ecology is more important than todayâ€™s economy. The integrated approach of composting and vermicomposting processes provides better results.
