Author(s): G.Narasimha, A.Sridevi

In this study, physico-chemical and microbiological properties of soil composed with Vermicompost was studied. Analysis of soil composed with vermicompost revealed that compost treated soil underwent changes in allmeasured physicochemical andmicrobiological parameters like higher water holding capacity, moisture content, electrical conductivity, organic content and microbial populations, than the control soil. Nearly two fold higher microbial populations were observed in vermicompost soil than the control. Improved physicochemical and microbiological parameters in vermicompost soil is an indications of improvement of soil fertility
