Vermicomposting is associated with environmentally and economically friendly processes to decompose organic waste. India’s agro-industrial sector contributes large resources of plant materials within the variety of compost. The results of vermicompost on the expansion, yield and chemical characteristics of lablab-bean Dolichos purpureus L. were meted out in the pot experiment. Five treatments were applied to gauge the impact of vermicompost, compared to inorganic fertilizers–NPK, 100:0, 75:25, 50:50, 25:75 and 100 percent chemical plant food. A pot experiment was conducted with the target to analyze the results of vermicompost and NPK plant food on crop growth, pods yield and organic chemistry characteristics of lablab-bean with 5 treatments and 5 replications. The macro and micronutrients were analyzed within the before and when treatment of pot mixture. Vital improvement of all the parameters, like the length of shoot, length of root, number of leaves, leaf area and number of branches was discovered in plants at regular intervals. Vermicompost contains a mixture of macro and micro-nutrients and therefore the uptake of the nutrients includes a positive impact on plant nutrition, growth, chemical change and pigment content of the leaves. The results showed that Vermi-fertilizer completely affected all measured characteristics of lablab-bean. This plant food is as progressively thought-about in agriculture and husbandry as a promising various to inorganic fertilizers and/or vegetable matter in greenhouse potting media.
