Abstract: The present investigation is related to “Influence of organic and inorganic additives on composting of incense bamboo waste”. The incense bamboo waste was decomposed by using small quantity of decomposing starter like organic (cow dung and poultry soil), inorganic (nitrogen) and biological additives (Phanerochaete chrysosporium). The decomposition rate of incense bamboo waste was more with combination of all additives and it was measured maximum in treatment BW+ 5 kg CD + 2.5 kg PM + 0.2 kg LF (T14).The significantly lowest total organic carbon (27.33%), C:N ratio (17.34) and highest total nitrogen (1.58%), total Phosphorus (0.52%), total potassium (1.16%), total sulphur (0.32%), percent reduction in weight loss (53.72%) was recorded in treatment BW+ 5 kg CD + 2.5 kg PM + 0.2 kg LF (T14). The desirable physico-chemical properties i.e. pH, EC, ash content, bulk density and colour was observed in matured compost of treatments BW+ 5 kg CD + 2.5 kg PM + 0.2 kg LF (T14), BW + 5 kg PM+ 0.2 kg LF (T9) and BW + 2.5 kg PM + 0.06 kg N + 0.2 kg LF (T13). Whereas limited decomposition was observed in treatment BW (control) (T1) without any additives. The result suggests that for composting of incense bamboo waste with organic (cow dung and poultry soil) and biological (lignolytic fungi) additives can be a suitable source for recycling incense industrial bamboo waste.
