Abstract

Application of vermicompost in field crops is gradually gaining popularity, but it has
remained unsolved exactly how much of it should be applied. While many scientists have
tested it by substituting different proportions of chemical N fertilizers, some others have
found good results by applying it with the recommended dose of fertilizer of N P and K. On
the other hand techniques are developing for combined use of vermicompost with other
biotic sources in organic farming. In the present article an attempt has been made to review
the work done on all the above aspect in different field crops and cropping systems involving
them.
