Nutrient recycling is now being considered as part of the concept of integrated nutrient management. The fertilizer potential of vermicompost is often attributed to its different concentrations and amounts of nutrients, especially nitrogen. Therefore, this dissertation work was taken at Bihar Agricultural University, Sabour to study the Effect of vermicompost application on nitrogen transformation in soil. So, two pot experiment has been taken: (1) Greenhouse study under the effect of root rhizosphere and (2) laboratory incubation study (without root rhizosphere ). Different levels of vermicompost were applied resulting different releasing pattern of mineralizable nitrogen, ammoniacal nitrogen, nitrate nitrogen and organic carbon due to the effect of root rhizosphere and activity of soil microbes in both the study.
Mr Ajeet Kumar graduated from CCS Haryana Agricultural University Hisar, M.Sc (Soil Science) from Bihar Agricultural University Sabour (India). He has qualified ASRB-NET and has outstanding research ability. His current research focusing on SSNM based nutrient application in rice-wheat cropping system in Alluvial soil.
