Abstract

The present study was carried out to study the effect of organic fertilizer on soil fertility and productivity on Pisum sativum l. A total of eight parameters viz. Moisture Content, pH, Electric Conductivity, Total Organic Carbon, Organic Matter, Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium were analyzed. The pH range was observed during this study between 6.33- 6.19 in control treatment, 7.60-7.44 in Vermicompost treatment and 7.40-7.20 in Farm Yard Manure. Maximum moisture content was found in (T3) 28.84% – 24.73 %. The equal value of moisture content were found in FYM (T2) was 22.73 % – 19.57 % and control pot (24.99% – 22.35%), highest mean value of Nitrogen was present in Vermicompost treatment (7.21 – 6.47%), while slightly low value was found in Farm Yard Manure treatment (6.38 – 5.57%) and lower value was found in control treatment (1.76–1.75%). The study also showed distinct differences between vermicompost, farm yard manure and garden soil (control) in terms of their nutrient content and their effect on germination and plant growth.The study revealed that vermicompost is the best organic fertilizer for the growth of plant as well as best method to reduce the organic waste and utilization through Vermicomposting.
