Abstract:

A preliminary experiment was carried out to evaluate the impact of fungal isolate screened and identified as cellulose producer Rhizomucor towards decomposition of green wastes (leaf litter, grasses and weeds) and subsequent vermicompost development. The vermicompost developed through normal process was considered as control and compared with the experimental one for its physiochemical properties. Data recorded on primary decomposition, time period required for vermicompost development and nutrient content exhibited the superiority of fungal degraded green waste and subsequent vermicompost over normal control vermicompost.
