Abstract:

Continuous use of chemical fertilizers without organic sources poses soil health issues whereas organic manures using alone without inorganics could not be able to fulfill the requirement of high nutrient demanding crops due to the bulk and slow-acting nature of these organic fertilizer sources. However, neither organic fertilizers nor inorganic fertilizers alone can maintain productivity. The major yield limiting factors in crops production in Indian soils are NPS deficiencies. So, the option is to concentrate on alternate system like integrated nutrient management to maintain the productivity of soils where INM is promising strategy that aims to achieving harmony in the conjoint use of all resources like organic manures, bio-fertilizers, vermicompost, chemical fertilizers and other non conventional sources of plant nutrients. Before the establishment of Green Revolution majorly millets were grown and only organic manures were used, but after the Green revolution use of synthetic fertilizers increased day-by-day. Now by seeing the advantages of organic manures in crop plants are drawing the interest of soil scientists and farmers all over the world. Organic manures are the valuable resources in most of the agricultural soils as they provide not only the nutrition but also replenish the organic matter content in soils. Many studies showed that INM activities for sustainable agriculture around the world may be creative and environmentally friendly. In this review paper we will study the impact on characters of growth, quality and yield of fruit plants of integrated nutrient management.
