Abstract

In the present study, the possible utilization of natural and artificial banana leaf waste which were discharged from Marriage halls were collected and investigated for the enzymatic studies. The Natural and artificial banana leaf waste were mixed with cowdung in the ratio of 1:1 and kept aside in a shed for vermicomposting and composting. The isolated microbes were subjected for qualitative and the quantitative enzyme analysis for the naturaland artificial banana leaf waste. In that the presence of enzymes such as amylase, cellulase , protease and lipase contents in vermicompostand compost were identified. Thus the vermicompost and the compost enriched with enzymes greatly enhance the fertility of the soil. These technologies help in reduction of the organic load on land fill. According to obtained results the left over and old banana leaves processed to as vermicompost and compost may help boost crop yields in terms of economical production and organic farming.
