Vermicompost is a new generation of organic fertilizer which is obtained by processing organic matter with the help of earthworms. The use of vermicompost contributes to the improvement of the physico-chemical properties of the ground through a better structuring of the soil, a decrease of the apparent density and an increase of the humus content in the soil. Vermicompost can replace chemical or organic fertilizers being very rich in nutrients and with a beneficial effect on the development of cultivated plants. The research was conducted in 2020 and aimed at the influence of vermicompost on the germination and development of tomato, pepper, eggplant and cucumber plants. There were used different variants: V1 - control, V2 - control treated with Tecamin Raiz, V3 - vermicompost 1 l/200 l water, V4 - vermicompost 1 l/150 l water and V5 - vermicompost 1 l/100 l water. The results obtained led to the determination of vermicompost doses for each species, being known that each group of plants has a certain need for nutrients.
