Review: Effect of inorganic fertilizers and organic fertilizers on green gram (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek) under different conditions
Monika Banotra, BC Sharma, Rakesh Kumar and RS Bochalya
Pulses form a basic part of the vegetarian diet of the large population of India. The use of inorganic fertilizer increases yield only for some few years but on long term, it has not been effective and leads to soil degradation. On the other hand, continuous application of organic fertilizer alone causes environmental degradation, resulting in lower crop yields. Therefore, sustainable agricultural productivity might be achieved through the wise use of integrated nutrient management. Hence, soil fertility maintenance is essential in achieving and maintaining high crop yields over a period of time. Unscrupulous use of inorganic fertilizers is to meet the demands of high yielding varieties rendering the soil organic matter depletion in tropical agriculture. Integrated use of organic manure and chemical NPK fertilizers would be quite promising not only in providing greater stability in production, but also in maintaining higher soil fertility status.
