An experiment was conducted at the experimental farm of Department of Soil Science, CSKHPKV, Palampur by taking French bean crop during kharif, 2009. Biocompost and vermicompost were prepared by using cow dung and weeds and were inoculated with microbial inoculants and rock phosphate. Biocompost and vermicompost were analysed and the best one among nine composts prepared i.e. 50% each of cowdung and substrate+ 2% rock phosphate + inoculants and three vermicomposts i.e. the one prepared by using Eupatorium waste, on the basis of nutrient content, was selected and applied to the crop in combination with fertilizers depending upon the treatment. There were twelve treatments and three replications in randomized block design. an increase in pH, organic carbon (12.42 g kg-1), CEC [12.84 cmol (p+) kg-1], available N, P and K (467.6 kg ha-1, 16.4 kg ha-1 and 191.5 kg ha-1 respectively), biomass carbon (89.34 µg g-1), water holding capacity, field capacity, permanent wilting point and total microbial count was observed in the treatments where vermicompost and biocompost were applied @15 t ha-1.
