Abstract:

The degradation of soil wellbeing is one of the most important predicaments to the farming community. There are several reasons for the loss of soil health. One among such issue is uncontrolled use of chemical fertilizers in agriculture ultimately worsen physical, chemical and biological properties of soil. Consequently, alternate solutions to overcome soil degradation, especially agricultural land, the natural way of farming came into existence. The concept of organic farming is mainly to utilize biofertilizers, farmyard manure, compost, vermicompost, green manuring, panchakavya, etc. Among which, green manuring is gaining momentum in terms of its pronounced effect on soil fertility status and crop growth in a sustainable way. Most often, the plants which are leguminous and nitrogen rich and fast growing are used as green manures along with non-leguminous plants for enriching soil in turn to increase crop growth and yield without any harm to the environment. The plants used for green manuring progress the humus, organic carbon content, available nitrogen and soil microbial population buildup. In addition, green manuring crops help to suppress weeds, reduce pest and disease problems and also provide supplementary animal forage. The present study highlights the importance of green manuring in sustainable agriculture.
