Objective/Backgrounds: The analysis of selected macronutrients such as NPK and OC content in the natural compost (WU) and vermicompost (WW) produced from sublethal concentrations of endosulfan mixed cow dung by the action of Indian earthworm Lampitomauritii (Kinberg). Methods/Statistical analysis: Biomass, OC, N, P and N level was observed in endosulfan mixed vermicompost and natural compost at the end of 90th day. Findings: The biomass of L. mauritii, OC, N, P and K was decreased in endosulfan treated experiments than control. Application/Improvements: To reduce the application of pesticides in the agricultural field due to affecting the non target farmer’s friend organism like earthworms.
Keywords: Earthworm, Lampitomauritii, Pesticide, Endosulfan, Growth, Nutrients.
