Land configuration and nitrogen management for enhancing the crop productivity: A review

Author(s):

Abstract:
Land configuration techniques such as ridges and furrows and broad bed and furrow can play a vital role to overcome soil related problems by providing easy and uniform germination as well as good growth and development of plants. The recommended land configuration for finger millet is flat bed which produces lesser yield mainly because of poor soil hydro regimes. It is highly essential to investigate the benefits of improved land configuration techniques like ridges and furrows and broad bed and furrow on the productivity of various crops. Land configuration plays a major role in minimizing soil erosion and improving water and nutrient use efficiency of field crops. Most of the crops normally grow on poor, marginal soils with imbalanced nutrient application. Among various nutrients, nitrogen is an inevitable nutrient for any crop. Nitrogen (N) management is also one of the most important factor required for improving crop productivity and profitability under semi-arid climates.
