Abstract:
Ignored traditional soil management practices, indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers, poor management of resources lead to the loss of soil fertility. Integrated nutrient management (INM) practices which is a combination of organic, inorganic and biological sources helps in improving and maintaining the soil fertility status along with sustainable crop yield. The effect of INM practices on soil fertility status was assessed in the study conducted for two consecutive years i.e. 2016-17 and 2017-18 in three blocks of Yavatmal and Amaravati districts of Maharashtra. Considerable improvement in macro and micronutrient status of soil was observed due to adoption of INM practices in cotton, pigeon pea and wheat crops. The results showed that the integration of organic and inorganic nutrient management practices brought down the soil from alkaline towards neutral range. Significant increase in contents of organic carbon, available nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, sulphur, iron, zinc and boron was also recorded in soil.
