Dr. Deepshikha Sharma
Parthenium hysterophorus L. is one of the most troublesome and an obnoxious weed of waste land and is now spreading rapidly its tentacles in forests, pastures and agricultural lands. Since the time this plant was introduced in India, it has not only naturalized itself but has spread at an alarming rate and has been reportedly found almost from all over India. In the present study an attempt has been made to produce vermicompost from Parthenium weed using local species of earthworms from Jammu and the physico chemical analysis of various vermicomposts and soil was carried out and compared with each other and with that of original soil sample.
