The conventional use inorganic fertilizers is expensive and growers are looking towards alternative inputs such as compost, manures, and crop residues to improve/maintain soil fertility. There is a need to improve nutrient management by eggplant growers to manage inputs more efficiently. The use of vermicompost and worm juice is becoming popular issue as part of integrated nutrient and pest management in vegetables particularly in Solanaceous Crops. Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) is cultivated for the immature fruits which are either roasted, fried, stuffed, cooked pickled or processed. Young fruits are also eaten raw.
