The present investigation “Response of vermi-compost on growth and yield of pea (Pisum sativum L.) cv. 
Arkel’’ comprised of seven treatments consisting of three level of vermi-compost, three level of vermi-compost with  NPK, and one level of FYM + NPK. During the experimentation, growth character and yield characters were  recorded. The germination of pea cv. Arkel, Seeds became faster with T4 (vermi-compost-10 t/ha+NPK) treatment  but there after the germination occurred at slower rate and days taken for completion of germination increased  progressively. The T4 (vermi-compost-10 t/ha + NPK) treatment exhibited the maximum nodule formation and  yield. A comparative study of the present findings led to the conclusion that sowing of pea with the application of  vermi-compost @ 10 t/ha and NPK @ 25:60:50 kg/ha was found most effective to best growth of pea crop under  Srinagar valley condition of Garhwal region of  Uttrakhand state.
