Researchers reported that compost contains macro and micro nutrients, a distinct microbial population, steady organic compound e.g. humic compound and labile organic matter, which is an important source of food and energy for the soil food
Furthermore, the change of strong wastes into vermicompost can be translated as one with a twofold interest. From one perspective, the wastes are changed over into a horticulturally valuable organic fertilizers which thus can possibly lessen the reliance on nonrenewable chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and, on the other, it controls a pollutant that is an outcome of expanding populace, urbanization and serious agribusiness (Kaushik and Garg,
As the population in the world is increasing, the amount of solid waste generation is also increasing in a tremendous amount. However, the increasing of population is not the only factor of the huge amount of the waste. Improper waste management also contributing to the piling of waste such as weak enforcement, lack of technology, ineffective policy and implementation of policy, deficiency in technologies and facilities to cope with the ever-increasing rate of waste generation. Moreover, the urban population is generating more organic waste than the rural population in Malaysia. This is because, the rapid development of urban areas, increase in per-capita income, rural-urban migration and also lifestyle
