Topic : Role of Integrated nutrient management to sustain productivity of intercropping system

Authors:Amit M. Pujar ||

Abstract:Textile industry is the backbone of industrial economy of India and cotton is the basic raw material of the industry. Cotton the king of fibres, is an industrial commodity of worldwide importance besides earning foreign exchange. India stands first among all the cotton growing countries of the world with an area of 11.70 m. ha, which accounts to one fourth of the world cotton area; and production of 29 m. bales of seed cotton. In India, the productivity of cotton is 532 kg ha-1 as compared to Australia, Turkey and Brazil with 2151, 1484 and 1465 kg ha-1, respectively. To meet the projected target of cotton production by 2025 A.D. many approaches were evaluated, among them intercropping, an agronomic approach was found to be better way. Intercropping helps in the total production with higher returns under dryland conditions, besides better utilization of natural and scarce resources per unit time. Suitable management practices like intercropping, judicious combination of organic and inorganic manures are considered ecologically viable, economically feasible and avoid environmental pollution which ensures sustainability in crop production. Combination of organic and inorganic manures works like slow release fertilizers for providing balanced nutrients to plants. Intercropping of cotton with short duration legume like soybean was found more remunerative than sole cotton..
