Abstract

The study was conducted to evaluate the effect of partly decomposed (not exposed to earthworm) and vermicompost of green gram waste obtained from the earthworm Eisenia fetida used in different culture medium of greengram waste on growth and yield of Okra plant. The mean values of total leaves, leaves weight, total plant weight, total pods, pods weight and pods perimeter of okra plant cultivated in the pots using different percent substrate ratios (0, 25, 50, 75, and100) were measured. The okra plants raised in soil alone showed poor growth over other doses of partly decomposed and vermicompost.
