Production of Aerated Vermicompost Teas and Their Effects on Xanthomonas Compestris and Black Spot Infected Rose Plants
P. Pothiselvi | R. Lakshmi Shree
Abstract: Vermitea is an excellent organic fertilizer and pesticide. In my project I try to explore the suitability and potential use of Eisenia foetida to the management of food wastes (vegetable, tea and fruit), agro wastes (sugar cane, corn, neem leaves and coir) and newspaper waste with the production of vermicomposts and to prepare Aerated Compost Teas (ACT) using different vermicomposts. Finally the nutrient quality of different Aerated Compost Teas (ACT) are analyzed and the effect of different Aerated Compost Teas (ACT) on Black spot infected rose plants are tested.
