Present study focus on the effect of foliar spray of vermiwash of different vermicomposts prepare from different animal agro and kitchen wastes on the growth, flowering period and productivity of wheat (Triticum aestivum), gram (Cicer arientinum), pea (Pisum sativum) and mustard (Brassica compastis) crops. The vermiwash of vermicompost of goat dung with vegetable wastes 10 mg/m2 shows significant growth in wheat which is followed by goat dung with wheat bran after 30 days of showing. After 50 days the combination of buffalo dung with vegetable wastes show significant growth in case of wheat crops. The combination of buffalo dung with gram bran gives highly significant growth of gram plant. The combination of horse dung with gram bran has maximum growth in mustard and pea plants. The foliar spray of all the different concentration of vermiwash has significant decreasing in flowering period of all the experimental Rabi crops. The maximum significant productivity observed in crops treated with different concentration of vermiwash with respect to control.
