The study aims to determine the effect of vermicompost on the growth of mung beans. It specifically aims to determine its effect on the height of mung beans in centimetres and on the number of leaves using four treatments in triplicates namely; Treatment A: 75% vermicompost + 25% common soil; Treatment B: 50% vermicompost + 50% common soil; Treatment C: 25% vermicompost + 75% common soil, and a control set-up using 100% common soil.
The mean was computed to determine the effect of the different treatments on the growth of mung beans in terms of height in centimetres and in the number of leaves.
The results include that Treatment A using 75% vermicompost + 25% common soil got the highest mean in terms of height (in cm) and has the most number of leaves.
Therefore, the researchers concluded that vermicompost greatly affect the growth of mung beans. The pure vermicompost offers an array of nutrients for the growing plants. Furthermore, it is recommended that vermicompost be used as organic fertilizer to plants.
Background of the Study
Population in the Philippines has been increasing steadily. Thus, the demand for food is also increasing. In order to boost crop production, farmers use inorganic fertilizers because they believe that they offer fast and greater crop yield. However, heavy
