Experimental studies were conducted to study the influence of various inorganic and organic components (nutrients) with different combinations of vermicompost concentrations against the species of Ocimum tenuiflorum var. CIM-Ayu at CIMAP, Research Centre, and Hyderabad during October 2010 to May, 2011. These studies were focus on the integrated nutrient management for production of higher herb in the species Ocimum tenuiflorum variety CIM-AYU. In the first phase experimental studies-six different levels of vermicompost (0–3.0 tons/ha) were applied and the observations were made against the with application of 3.0 tons of vermicompost per hectare resulted in better growth in Ocimum tenuiflorum variety CIM-AYU. Similarly a significant improvement in the number of leaves per plant was noticed due to vermicompost application. The considerable amount of increase in plant weight was noticed due to application of three tons of vermicompost per hectare/s. Naturally occurring organic biofertilizer vermicompost contains 1.5–2.5% Nitrogen, 0.9–1.7% Phosphorus, 1.5–2.4% Potash, 0.5–1.0% Calcium, 0.2–0.3% Magnesium, 0.4–0.5% Sulphur.
