Abstract: Resistivity of cow waste, chicken waste, ashes, decayed sawdust, garden soil or earth and laterite soil is determined in perspective of improving electrical conductivity of the earth. Effect of moisture on resistivity of samples is considered. Using soil Box method, study revealed that ashes have the lowest resistivity (1.04 Ω-m), followed by chicken waste (5.84 Ω-m) and cow waste (9.88 Ω-m). Present study recommends these biological wastes as cheap sources of reducing soil resistivity of earth around embedded electrodes for electrical earthing
