Vermial and microbial composting of leaf litter waste

Composting of leaf litter using the epigeic, exotic earthworm Eisenia fetida and the microbial kinetize (Quikompost) was carried out in order to compare their efficacies in waste management. The quantity of leaf litter composted and the biomass (earthworm/microbial) recovered after composting were increased with increasing the quantity of earthworm/microbial kinetizer.
