Composting is an alternative for recycling biodegradable organic waste, transforming it into organic fertilizer that can be used as agricultural nutrients, avoiding its disposal in landfills. This study evaluated the composting of Jyoti Nivas college hostel kitchen waste using Arka Microbial Consortium, with a view to its applications on Germination percentage, Seed Vigour Index and plant growth parameters of French bean (Arka arjun) and Amaranthus (Arka arunima) seeds. Arka microbial consortium (AMC) is carrier based product which contain nitrogen fixing, potassium and zinc solubilizing plant growth promoting microbes used as decomposers. The experiment was conducted under greenhouse conditions in a randomized block design, with two treatments and three replicates. Assessments of plant growth parameters were performed and results suggest that using Arka Microbial Consortium with bio compost is suitable for better production French bean (Arka arjun) and Amaranthus (Arka arunima) seeds that may increase soil fertility and this integrated approach could be contributed to improve crop production.
