Abstract: The present investigation was conducted to evaluate the effect of Indigenous microorganism (IMO) in decomposing compost pile mixtures of farm wastes and plant materials [ (carbonize rice hull/ corn husk/ chicken manure/ IpilIpil dry leaves (Leucaena glauca) / Kakawati dry leaves (Gliridia sepium)] for the purpose of increasing nutrient content values of bio-organic fertilizer. Samples of IMO was collected from a bamboo forest in Potia, Alfonso Lista, Ifugao, Philippines and cultured. Two (2) rates of IMO concentrations (2Tbsp and 3Tbsp) mixed in one litter (1L) of distilled water as treatment was sprayed on 50 kilos of compost pile in a cage bin under a constructed shade. The experiment was laid out in a complete randomized design (CRD) with three replications. Nutrient analysis of compost residues after 30days of decomposition showed increased percentages of macro and micro nutrients with the application of 3Tbsp of IMO.
