Abstract

Integrated nutrient management (INM) has been a popular area of investigation in crop production research, with varied concept and applications. The basic concept of INM is the adjustment of plant nutrient supply to an optimum level for sustaining the desired crop productivity. Every crop has strict requirement for a balanced nutrient management, without which growth and development are poor and yield is remarkably reduced, continuing with deterioration in soil health and also holds great promise in meeting the growing nutrient demand of intensive agriculture and maintaining the production sustainability without deterioration in the quality of plant environment.
