Abstract:

The agricultural production in sufficient quantities in a sustainable way is the today’s greatest challenge. The sustainable way here means without deteriorating the soil health. In current scenario, the cultivation of high yielding varieties with synthetic fertilizer and agrochemicals helping to produce required food demand of growing population but indiscriminate and imbalanced use of agrochemicals imparting negative effect on soil productivity, environmental health and food quality. It is therefore, important to use appropriate production system that produces good quality food in sufficient quantities without degrading the soil and polluting environment. The organic nutrient management favors soil health sustenance and environmental protection. However, the system has always been criticized for limitations with respect to crop performance in terms of yield. The subsequent modification and integration in organic nutrient management system increased its efficiency. The studies indicating the importance and benefits of organic nutrient management towards agricultural production and soil health sustenance has been reviewed in present work. The comprehensive review revealed that the organic nutrient management either sole or integrated is essential for optimum crop production and improving soil properties.
