This paper deals with the management and decomposition of organic wastes by using vermicomposting technology to produce nutrient rich worm cast. Two types of livestock manure in combinations with agro/kitchen wastes were used for culturing the earthworm Eisenia foetida. The growth and development of an epigeic earthworm Eisenia foetide was studied under identical laboratory conditions. The concentration of total C and total K were higher in cow manure than those of chick manure. Number of earthworms weight and length of Eisenia foetida were higher in combination of gram bran with cow dung.
