In the present study, the conversion potential of earthworm Eisenia fetida of waste feed materials into rich nutrients biofertilizer and chemical analysis of feed materials before and after vermicomposting was observed. The significant decrease in EC, pH, C/N ratio and organic carbon whereas, significant increase in level of total potassium (TK), TKN, total phosphorus(TP) and total calcium (TCa) in different combination of vermiwash of buffalo dung with poultry litter and leaf litter in compression to initial feed mixture were observed. The increased level of plant nutrients in final vermiwash of different combinations of feed mixture demonstrated that the vermiwash, of biological wastes can be a valuable biofertilizer for sustainable land restoration practices.
