Abstract: Catharanthus roseus, commonly known as pink periwinkle or rose periwinkle is a species of flowering plant from the family Apocyanacea. It is grown as an ornamental and medicinal plant. This plant is a source of the drungs Vinicistina and Viniblastine that are commonly used to treat cancer. A field experiment was conducted with periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus L. ) to study the influence of different treatments of vermicompost with inorganic fertilizers on the growth and yield of periwinkle.
