Effect of Organics on Sustainable Agriculture and Soil Quality
Abstract: Indian agriculture has shifted from traditional to intensive farming with indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, which in turn has made our soils largely non-productive and contaminated the ground water. Indian soils are also becoming poor in organic matter and there is a growing concern for regular application of organic manures and recycling crop residues to sustain productivity and high responses to NPK fertilizer. Thus, there is need to apply organic manures as essential part of crop production to balanced plant nutrition for sustainable agriculture.
