A structure for Multi-layered Vermicomposting at Katra, Jammu & Kashmir

A number of horses and mules are used for transportation on mountain terrains in Jammu and Kashmir. Due to low temperatures in these regions, it is difficult to use this cattle dung in the preparation of biogas. So, in order to increase the utility of cattle dung for agricultural purposes, composting is necessary when compared to direct use of farmyard manure.

The objective is to build an appropriate structure to carry out the vermicomposting process. The structure should be such that it is suitable for hilly areas and produces optimum output.
