In a field experiment (1994-97), the water retention capacity, percentage of pore space of soil were increased and bulk density was reduced over control treatments due to addition of city waste compost (CWC). Incorporation of CWC in soil increased organic carbon (OC), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) content over control. The organic matter content of soil found the highest rate, with CWC @ 5t/ha. The highest growth and yield of jute was recorded every year or on alternate year with CWC @ 4 t/ha over control and recommended dose of fertilizer.
