      Jesikha.M , M. Lekeshmanaswamy
Abstract: The growth of Eudrilus eugeniae (Kingberg) in cattle waste and Pongamia leaf waste was studied. The wastes where prepared separate media for growing worms. The worm’s growth in the form of weight has been recorded in every week. The result of both media in total weight was gradually increased. The highest total weight 1,287mg in cow dung medium and followed by Pongamia leaf medium1,098mg. The maturation of worm also recorded in 8th and 9th week in cow dung and Pongamia leaf media respectively. The growth gain and growth rate was also observed in both media. The waste can composed by earthworm to form good fertilizers but the Pongamia leaves contain some chemical substrate affect the growth and maturation of earthworm Eudrilus eugeniae.
