Vermicomposting is a process in which earthworms are used to convert organic materials into humus-like material known as vermicompost. A number of researchers throughout the world found that the nutrient profile in the vermicompost is generally higher than traditional compost. In fact, vermicompost can enhance soil fertility physically, chemically and biologically. Physically, vermicompost treated soil has better aeration, porosity, bulk density and water retention. The chemical properties such as pH, electrical conductivity and organic matter content are also improved for better crop yield. Although vermicomposts have been shown to improve plant growth significantly, the application of vermicomposts at high concentrations could impede the growth due to the high concentrations of soluble salts available in the vermicomposts. Therefore, vermicomposts should be applied at moderate concentrations in order to obtain maximum plant yield. This review paper discussed in detail the effects of vermicompost on soil fertility physically, chemically and biologically. Future prospects and economy on the use of organic fertilizers in agriculture sector were also examined
