      Shlrene Quaik, Mahamad Hakimi Ibrahim
Abstract: Rising demand on fertilizer is closely related with the rising demand of crop as the population increases. Land available to be used for agricultural purposes is limited. With the increase of health awareness of people, organically cultured fruits and vegetables are getting attention and in demand. Although chemical fertilizers are still in extensive use these days, people are getting more aware of the effects brought by these chemicals. Environmental as well as health problems have raised the alarm on the effects of usage of chemical fertilizer and consuming of heavily chemically fertilized crops. Vermicomposting has been getting attention due to its environmental friendly approach. Beside the compost produced, recent interest has been brought up due to the possible use of the liquid by products from this green technology. Several terms have been used to describe the liquids derived from the vermicomposting process. This paper reviews the common terms used for vermicompositng derived liquids, its potential in agricultural use as well as its pros and cons.
