Methods: In this experimental was prepared the bagasse and kitchen waste treatment in three replication (a total of 9 units Laboratory). parameters such as pH , total carbon , total nitrogen , phosphorous and potassium was measured for 60 day. Results: In the end, pH did not change as compared to the initial level and trend. The results showed decreased in total carbon, total nitrogen , C/N and increased , phosphorous and potassium .the highest phosphorous and potassium content obtained 1:2 ratio. Conclusion: In the vermicomposting process, the best of mixture bagasse with kitchen waste was observed in 1:2 ratio and superior to other treatment.
