Abstract:

Integrated Nutrient Management (INM) is an agronomic practice in which both organic and inorganic sources of fertilizers are used. The main aim of INM is to minimize the use of chemical fertilizers. It can reduce environmental pollution and help in maintaining soil fertility by fulfilling the plant nutrient requirement. It also helps in maximizing profitability and reducing environmental hazards. In plants, roots control nutrient conversions, microbial activity and plants absorb nutrients. Due to this, INM practice is applied to the root zone. It also enhances microbial activity. This strategy is essential to plummet the disease infestation through managing the level of potassium, nitrogen and other essential elements. The application of organic manure with recommended dose of fertilizers is useful to enhance soil organic carbon and productivity. INM enhances the profitability of farmer by reducing the cost of cultivation. However, many farmers face obstacles in obtaining organic manures because they have limited knowledge of organic waste recycling to produce high-quality compost. Moreover, biotic and abiotic factors, poor tillage, unavailability of extension services are some other problems due to which farmers are unable to follow integrated nutrient management. There are various benefits of using INM such as soil conservation, nutrient management, and restoration of ecological balance. Therefore, the government should focus to promote INM strategy to enhance farming yield with minimum deterioration of natural resources.
