Abstract:
Pearl millet is a main dual purpose crop, its grain used for human consumption while the fodder used for livestock, have a ability to withstand high temperatures outperforms all other cereals, making it a climate resilient crop. Due to inadequate soil fertility and a lack of appropriate soil nutrient replenishment techniques, along with irregular rainfall patterns, the average yield of pearl millet is low when compared to its potential yields. Poor economic conditions of the farmers in the arid regions prevent them to use costly fertilizers. Moreover, continuous and sole use of chemical fertilizers has resulted in numerous problems so integrated nutrient management help in resolving these concerns, which has been proposed as a promising strategy for addressing such challenges Balanced use of organic, inorganic and biofertilizers is essential to maintain a good soil physical and chemical environment and also serve as energy source for the soil microbial biomass. This review examines the concepts, objectives, principles of INM. A comprehensive literature search revealed that INM enhances growth and yield of pearl millet and improves soil fertility.
