Abstract

Marine waste contains minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and moisture which provides nutrient to the soil. In the present work crab and prawn waste were used as nutritional supplements to plants. It was found that crab shell waste increased the germination rate and growth of plants in terms of shoot and root length when compared to prawn waste. Keywords: Biofertilizer, Prawn shell, crab shell, growth, root length, shoot length
