    Vermicomposting is considered as a quality input in organic farming and it is considered residue free. Most of us know that fresh waste can directly be used for vermicomposting but it needs pre-composting. Addition of waste materials without pre-composting will increase the temperature up to 75 degree Celsius. In this temperature the earthworm gets killed. Hence it should be pre-composted for 30 days by mixing cow dung slurry with waste at the ratio of 3:1. This means that every three parts of waste and one part of cow dung slurry should be mixed and heaped for thirty days to reduce heat formation in the bed.
