Abstract: Sustainable agriculture is one in which the goal is permanence, achived through the utilization of renewable resources. This leads to development of concept of organic natural farming. There is an increasing awareness about organic farming in view of the energy shortage, food safety and environmental concerns arising out of conventional farming. Organic farming involves harnessing of soil organism to process to animal and plant residues and to produce slow release of nutrients as needed by the crops. Earthworms can be called as biological indicators of soil fertility for millions of years before the green revolution, these silent machines have been performing a marvellous function of ploughing and fertilizing soils. The present investigation deals with effects of vermicompost on germination effiency, growth, yield and quality of Vigna radiata L. (Mung bean) were observed in the 15 days regular intervals. The growth and yield performance of Vigna radiata. L in vermicompost are significantly higher than the control.
