Vermicompost are produced through the interaction between earthworm and microorganism by break down of large organic waste materials into easily utilizable nutrient form. Vermicompost plays a major role in improving soil fertility and productivity of different field crops.The present study was conducted to determine the effect of vermicompost on seed germination and seedling growth of T. foenum-graecum Linn. The high seed germination percentage and seedling growth, number of leaves, fresh and dry weight of the plant was observed in 20g vermicompost supplemented seeds.
