Soil Management Strategies to Promote Higher Crop Productivity within Sustainable Environments
Shinde S. Y.  | Sirsath D. B
Abstract: According to the increasing population and reduction in the amount of land and some other resources have created tremendous pressure on current agricultural producers for the increasing food demands. Hence, future efforts to feed the growing population should aim for greater agricultural production within sustainable environments. Therefore, some innovative steps are needed, as business-as-usual policies lack the potential to cope with these challenges. The concept of agricultural sustainability and various soil and crop management strategies (SCMS) that have been designed to optimize crop yield under sustainable environmental conditions are discussed, including nutrient management, site specific nutrient management (SSNM), integrated nutrient management (INM), integrated soil fertility management (ISFM), integrated soil-crop system management (ISSM), ridge-furrow mulching systems (RFMS), sustainable water management (SWM), conservation agriculture (CA), sustainable land management (SLM), vertical/sky farming, and integrated crop management, and breeding strategies as well as other approaches combined with technological and behavioral changes. The present review focused on sustainable production system can be developed by combining the multifaceted efforts under SCMS practices with short-and long-term preventive measures. Reducing chemicals plus improvements in the crop input use efficiency could minimize greenhouse gases emissions which protecting the environment.
