1. A Comparative Study of Organic Farming in Potato Crops Through Vermicompost & Pesticides
Author : Babita Agrawal
Keyword : Eisenia, Organic Farming, Pesticides.

Volume:12,Issue:1,PP:1-4,Year:(2017)
Vermicomposting is a process in which earthworms are used to convert materials into humus like material k/a vermicompost. Earthworms are the beneficial soil organisms that acts as natures best fertilizers. They have beneficial role in the process of vermicomposting that is very useful in crop production but the excessive use of pesticides in the crop fields not only hampered these “nature’s best fertilizers” Earthworms but also reduces crop production. In our present study the impact of these pesticides and vermicompost that were used in potato crops and on Eisenia Foetida was noted. Changes in number and biomass of Eisenia Foetida were monitored four times in various applications of Pesticides and Vermicompost. Four Pesticides that are commonly used in Potato crops are Chlorpyriphos,Malathion, Carbofuran and Pyrethroids. Thus, the negative impact of these Pesticides on Eisenia Foetida and Potato Crops has been reported when compared to the control Vermicompost. The effect of Pesticides was noted in following order. Chlorpyriphos>Malathion>Carbofuran>PYrethroidmethodology/approach resolves the limitations of traditional FMEA approach. The number and biomass of Earthworm decrease on increasing the application of Pesticides. Thus, reduces crop production but organic farming favours the growth of Earthworm as well as potato crops
