Abstract: Chemical fertilizers became popular throughout the World. They were associated with instantaneous increased in the crop yield, thereby increasing the profit to the farmers. But in recent years notable environmental damage is observed because of their continuous field application and overuse. Water and soil pollution, loss of micro-organisms and beneficial insects and overall reduction in soil fertility are some of the ill effects of chemical fertilizers. Durg District of the Chhattisgarh is a major rice growing District situated in agro climatic zone of Chhattisgarh plains. Average rainfall of the Durg district is 1200-1300 mm. The experiment was conducted at Village-Batang, Durg district of the Chhattisgarh. It was concluded that application of Integrated Nutrient Management in Transplanted rice produce 26 tillers per plant and 44.5q/ha yield as compared to farmer’s field, which produced 24 tillers/plant, produced 43.5q/ha positively it was almost similar. Hence it could be recommended that Integrated Nutrient Management being essential component and play vital role in maintaining long term soil fertility and sustainability and also reducing overuse of chemical fertilizers.
