By using Lumbricus rubellus, vermicomposting started after 3 weeks of pre composting. Five treatments in different ratio of cow dung : spent mushroom substrate were prepared as feed materials with four replicates for each treatment namely; 80:20 (T1), 60:40 (T2), 50:50 (T3), 40:60 (T4) and 20:80 (T5). After 7 weeks of vermicomposting, macronutrient elements of vermicompost produced were measured and the process continues with composting when all the earthworms were taken out from the treatments. Macronutrient elements of compost produced were also measured after 20 weeks of composting. The data reveals that 7 weeks for vermicomposting ...

The effect of vermicomposting duration to macronutrient element in vermicompost was investigated. Three different treatments were prepared with eight replicates for each treatment namely cow dung: kitchen waste in 30:70 ratios (T1), cow dung: coffee grounds in 30:70 ratio (T2), and cow dung: kitchen waste: coffee grounds in 30:35:35 ratios (T3). Vermicompost produced by Lumbricus rubellus were analyzed in week tenth and thirtieth. In conclusion, longer duration of vermicomposting will enhance the quality of vermicompost. This is shown by the percentage increase of macronutrient elements (N & P) and declining of C/N ratio.

Vermicomposting using Lumbricus rubellus for 49 days was conducted after 21 days of pre-composting. Three different combination of treatments were prepared with eight replicates for each treatment namely cow dung : kitchen waste in 30:70 ratio (T1), cow dung : coffee grounds in 30:70 ratio (T2), and cow dung : kitchen waste : coffee grounds in 30:35:35 ratio (T3). At the end of study, there was a significant difference between numbers of earthworms among the three different treatments (p < 0.05). In contrast with weights of earthworms there was no significant difference (p > 0.05) among the three treatments. By comparing the numbers and weights of earthworms in each treatments (T1, T2 & T3) only ...
