A field experiment was conducted in Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Farm, Dhaka, Bangladesh during December, 2011 to April, 2012 to study the effect of integrated use of vermicompost, pressmud and urea on soil fertility status after harvest of rice (Hybrid Dhan Hira 2). Ten treatments coded from T1 to T10 were used in this experiment. The highest amount of organic matter (1.67 %) were observed in T9 treatment receiving 120 kg N/ha from vermicompost. The highest amount of total nitrogen (0.070 %), were observed in T3 treatment receiving 90 kg N/ha from urea along with 30 kg N/ha from vermicompost. The highest amount of available phosphorus (11.71 ppm) and available sulfur (11.46 ppm) in postharvest soil were recorded in treatment T2 receiving 120 kg N/ha from urea. The highest amount of available potassium (21.85 ppm) were observed in T5 treatment receiving 60 kg N/ha from urea along with 60 kg N/ha from vermicompost. On the other hand the lowest values of these parameters were obtained from control treatment T1.
