Abstract:
Sugar mill and distillery effluents are adversely affect the environment and its components. These effluents are having higher amount of harmful chemicals, chloride, sulphate, nitrate etc. Vermicomposting with earthworm Eisenia fetida is a suitable way for conversion of wastes in to rich organic bio-fertilizers. The physico-chemical properties of soil were observed before and after mixing of vermicompost of different combinations of effluents of sugar mill and distillery with animal dung. There was significant different in total Kjeldhal nitrogen (TKN), total available phosphorous (TAP), total potassium (TK), total calcium (TCa) level and significant decreased in C/N ratio, total organic carbon (TOC) and electrical conductivity (EC) of vermicompost with soil with respect to soil alone. The aim of present study was to determine the chemical compositions of soil before and after with vermicompost.
