Nutrient analysis of vermicompost using different feeding media

Gloria L. Unito*

This study focused on the analysis of macronutrients (NPK) present in vermicompost using different feeding media. The materials used in the study were the 3 kilograms vermiworm (African night crawlers), 15 plastic containers (worm bins), rice straw, grass clippings, food left over, Madre de Cacao leaves, and cow manure. Vermiworms were divided into five according to the kind of substrate they received as their food. One hundred grams of air-dried vermicost was packed from each bin for laboratory test and total nitrogen was measured using Modified Kjeldhal Method, Flame Photometer Method was used for measuring total potassium, and total available phosphorus using (Bray P2 Method) Spectrophotometer. The study conclusively asserts that the different feeding media used in the production of vivmicompost yielded a higher level of macro-nutrients based on the parameters mentioned by ICAR Research Complex for NEH Region. Other research will focus on the identification of micronutrients present.
