Soil Health, Soil Conservation and Fertilizers

This topic covers the information related to Soil Health, Soil Conservation and Fertilizers Schemes and Assistance

What to Do?

  • Always use appropriate fertilizer in right quantity based on soil test.
  • Must use organic manures to maintain the fertility of soil.
  • In order to get maximum benefit of the fertilizers, always apply in root zone instead of broadcasting.
  • Resort to 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 enrichment of soil.
  • Farmers desirous of adopting Participatory Organic Guarantee System (PGS – India) Certification system may form a group of at least 5 farmers and get it registered with the nearest Regional Council or Regional Centre of Organic Farming.
  • Soil Health Card - Under the scheme, Soil Health card will be provided to all farm holdings in the country at an interval of 2 years so as to enable the farmers to apply appropriate recommended dosages of nutrients for crop production and improving soil health and its fertility.
