Formulation of Organically Enriched Soil Media and Analysis of Organic Matter (Carbon): A Biomaterial for Sustainable Agricultural Practices

Dr. Urmila Sarkar, Sensei Surendra Sawardekar


Abstract: Sustainable Agricultural Practice plays integrated role by increasing the efficiency of soil. Such agriculture practice is followed by various methodologies with the use of biodegradable organic material. This biomaterial enriches the soil by increasing the components like Carbon [C] and Nitrogen [N]. Organic rich quality farming practice ensures oneself with adequate profit causing no harm to the environment and boosting soil fertility as required for plant growth. Thus maintaining the sustainability of soil as a media to be used for a next cycle of cultivation. Use of hazardous chemicals leads to a dropdown in soil fertility with decrease in organic matter further affecting a quality of crop produce. Hence, tremendous need for biodegradable materials to increase quality farming and crop produce has become an utmost necessity in the field research and development. This research paper aims to study soil media when mixed with suitable biodegradable organic materials. An experimental study of formulation with a mixture of different organic materials in-order to prepare a suitable biomaterial. This biomaterial is treated on soil and analyzed for its pH and increase of organic matter in soil. The research concludes a potential increase in organic matter leading to the stability of soil developing a potential for growing crops under sustainable agricultural practices.
