In nutrition a new era is emerging that is characterized by search for dietary constituents that have benefits beyond those described to the macro and micro-nutrients. The use of chemical fertilizers, contributes largely depletion of fossil fuels, generation of carbon dioxide and contamination of water resource it leads to loss of soil fertility due to imbalance use of fertilizers that has adversely impacted agriculture productivity and causes of soil degradation. Compositing has been recognized as a low cost and environmentally sound process for treatment of many organic wastes. Vermicompost is the type of compositing that was studied on the growth parameters of Ground Nut plant (Arachis hypogaea. L). Vermicompost is a product delivered from the accelerated biological degradation of the organic waste by earth worm and microorganisms. Vermicompost chemical composition contains especially nitrates, exchangeable phosphorous, soluble potassium, calcium and magnesium than that of growth media. The study was mainly aimed on the plant growth and biochemical composition on the seedlings that was grown in difference composition of the vermicompost such as [10%-100%]. The biochemical analysis and enzyme assay shows variations in different concentration.
