In India, there is sufficient availability of organic manures like animal dung manure (791.6 mt), crop residues (603.5 mt), green manure (4.50 m ha), rural compost (148.3 mt), city compost (12.2 mt) and biofertilizer (0.41 mt)and these may become a good substitute of chemical fertilizers to maintain the soil physico-chemical and biological properties. The incorporation of organic manures improves the nutrient content and uptake. Although organic manures contain plant nutrients in small quantities as compared to the fertilizer, the presence of growth promoting principles like enzyme and hormones besides plant materials make them essential for improvement of soil fertility and productivity.For better utilization of resources and to produce crops with less expenditure, INM is the best approach. In this approach all the possible source of plant nutrients are applied based on economic consideration and the balance required for the crop is supplemented with chemical fertilizers. The combined use of organic and inorganic sources of plant nutrient not only pushes the production and profitability of field crops, but also it helps in maintaining the permanent fertility status of the soil.
