Author(s): Rakesh Dhakad, Pramod Kumar and Chandra Kant Sharma
Abstract: The soils of Madhya Pradesh are generally poor status of micronutrients nutrients. Prospect for horizontal development on agriculture very diminutive, thus the future food, fodder, fruit, fiber, fuel requirement has to be met through vertical expansion with increasing crops productivity unit-1 area of soil. The intensification is results in further whooping of micronutrients nutrients mining from the finite Zn, Fe Cu Mn resources on soil to crop, which may lead to causes as deficiency of all micronutrients to crop besides aggravating that existing ones. That the most important constituents soil in organic matter, an appreciable is amount of organic matter in soil tremendously increase soil fertility. Decay of organic matter release nitrogen, phosphorus and micronutrients nutrients in soil available to wheat crop. Micronutrient deficiencies in soil so that the crop are referred to as ‘Hidden Hunger’ affects the health, learning ability as well as productivity of crops owing to high rates of illness and disability contributing to vicious nutrients cycle of malnutrition, underdevelopment and poverty.
