Soil Health, Soil Conservation and Fertilizers-Maharashtra

Soil Health, Soil Conservation and Fertilizers-Maharashtra

What to do?

  •  Always use appropriate fertilizer in right quantity based on soil test.
  • Must use organic manures to maintain the fertility of the soil.
  • In order to get the maximum benefit of the fertilizers, always apply in root zone instead of broadcasting.
  • Resort to the judicious and efficient use of Phosphatic Fertilizers for proper development of Roots/shoots and timely maturity of crops, particularly the legumes which fix atmospheric Nitrogen for the enrichment of soil.
  • For reclaiming acidic soil, use lime and for saline/usar soil, use gypsum.
  • Farmers desirous of adopting Participatory Organic Guarantee System (PGS – India) Certification may form a group of at least 5 farmers and get it registered with the nearest Regional Council or Regional Centre of Organic Farming.
