Abstract:

Maize is considered as important cereal crop which occupies third position after rice and wheat. Maize is considered as heavy feeder of nutrients and requires continuous and assured supply of nutrients throughout its growth period. Now-a-days, maize is grown under intensive agricultural conditions with more of chemical fertilisers although organic fertilizers are minimally used. The increased change in prices of fertilisers, deterioration of soil health and environmental concerns, are necessitating the use of organic manures which is gaining momentum. In this concern, incorporation of crop residues helps in enhancing soil fertility particularly of legumes. The update for the research undertaken on influence of legume incorporation on growth and productivity of maize is provided in this overview.
