Sustainable reuse of rice residues as feedstocks in vermicomposting for organic fertilizer production

Over the past decade, rice cultivation has increased in many rice-growing countries due to the increasing export demand and population growth and led to a copious amount of rice residues, consisting mainly of rice straw and rice husk, being generated during and after harvesting
