Organic manuring in Karnataka

1. Organic manuring also improves the physical and microbial conditions of soil and enhances fertilizer use efficiency when applied in conjunction with mineral fertilizers. Thus, all the major sources of plant nutrients such as soil, mineral, organic and biological should be utilized in an efficient and judicious manner for sustainable crop production in rice-rice cropping system.

2. Several studies have been conducted on the complementary use of organic and mineral fertilisers in cropp

Importance of INM in Karnataka

1. Highest yields of Kharif and Rabi rice were obtained with application of green manure and N application. Long-term experiments have shown that neither organic sources nor mineral fertilizers alone can achieve sustainability in crop production. 2. Continuous use of FYM is effective in stabilizing rice productivity under low to medium cropping intensity where the nutrient demand is relatively small. 3. Integrated use of organic and mineral fertilizers has been found to be more effective

Specific INM Practices in Karnataka

1. Intensive rice cropping with short-duration high-yielding varieties along with increased use of mineral fertilizers and improved irrigation facilities have resulted in spectacular increases in crop productivity.

2. This has, however, led to gradual replacement of organic manures as sources of plant nutrients. There has been a sharp increase in the prices of P and K fertilizers following withdrawal of subsidy, which was led to their decreased consumption by the farmers.

3. The
