Abstract:

Intensive tillage increases soil compaction, reduces soil aggregates stability, disrupts soil productivity, decreases retention and transportation of water and solutes and exacerbates losses due to run-off erosion. In contrast conservation agriculture like zero-till and minimum tillage (reduced tillable) increased porosity, organic carbon, water holding capacity and decreases bulk density. The FIRBS and ridge bed planting system improves soil environment for better plant and growth development with minimum requirement of irrigation water. Sub-soiling again a newly introduced intervention to break down the hard pan for improving field drainage and provides better soil tilth. The farmers often apply very high dose of nitrogen in form of urea and very little phosphorous and potassium and almost nil secondary and micronutrients leading to imbalance, toxicity as well as inadequate use of nutrients with reduce nutrient use efficiency and profitability. The intervention on plant nutrition’s like site-specific nutrient management and recommended dose of fertilizer based on proper field experimentations and crop response, covering special variability in indigenous nutrient supplying capacity of are urgently required.
