The earthworm is very beneficial for the soil fertility and for maintaining the earthworm in the soil, soil moisture and organic matter should be at optimum temperature level. From such a point of view the analysis of nutrient contents in biomedical waste treated with earthworm for the plant growth is very important. In present work the the total organic carbon, nitrogen, available phosphorous (as p2o5) and potassium (as k2o) at beginning and after different vermicomposting period were analyzed. During this study the moisture content (70-80%) pH (7.5 to 8) and organic matter (40-60%) was observed in biomedical waste consisting of cottons and bandage treated through vermicompost while in plant material moisture content (70-90%) pH (7.5-8.0) and organic matter (50-60%) was observed through vermicompost treatment.
