Although worldwide, the use of vermicomposts in horticulture is a well-known technique, in Romania, this is at pioneering level. Therefore, the present study presents the results of an experiment that aimed at determining the influence of the application of vermicompost in the substrate in different proportions and the foliar application in different concentrations of the vermicompost filtered macerate on the seedlings of eggplants (Solanum melongena L.). The analysis of the results revealed that, compared to the blank variant, to which no vermicompost was applied, all the other variants have recorded superior results in the growth and development of seedlings. The best results were obtained in substrate fertilizer variants, 20% and 10%. Favorable results were also recorded in the variant where the vermicompost was applied foliar as filtered macerate at a concentration of 30%.
