Legumes are huge potential to fix atmospheric nitrogen biologically and share biologically fixed N with non-legumes in association with non-legume intercrops or provide to the succeeding non-legume crops in sequential cropping. Besides, legume create above and below ground diversity, higher ground cover and checking of soil erosion, more yield in inter-cropping and sequential cropping, change pest-pathogen population dynamics and host range, greater utilization of available natural resources. Moreover, in organic agriculture, crop rotation with legumes are considered as suitable options for restoration of soil fertility. My question is : "Is legume in association as intercrops or in sequential cropping with non-legumes can lead towards agricultural sustainability for small holders in developing countries?"
In the conventional agriculture high crop yields are obtained and soil fertility and productivity are maintained by following improved practices including good seed, irrigation, fertilizer and pesticide application ,machinery use and good crop management.The conventional agriculture is now meeting the food and nutritional requirements of the current high populations in countries like India.The low input agriculture basically relies on low nutrients inputs especially based on animal dung and urine like solid manures, slurries and dung and urine based liquid preparations. As these preparations are applied in a limited quantity, they may not meet the full nutritional requirement of crops in high yield environment. So the crop utilizes more of soil nutrients and in the long run the soil fertility may go down and crop productivity may fall.So , can the low input agricultural systems sustain both soil and crop productivity in long run?
Soil is one of the most important life sustaining materials on the earth. It is an essential medium for plants growth that initiate the ecosystem and provide food, either directly or indirectly, to all living organisms. Therefore, maintaining soil fertility is perhaps the foremost concern especially of the farmers. So, it must be clarified that how the soil fertility and sustainability can be maximized and which method is best one to do this considering the economic viability as well.
Soil organic carbon is undoubtedly claimed to be the key driver of soil fertility , the consequential effect of which is visible on a whole range of soil properties , thereby, possibly ensuring the better crop performance . Regulating soil carbon is most stupendous task, though , it looks easy ( many would advocate simple application of composts and manures) . In this background, , i propose following questions to our learned colleagues to please enlighten us with your shear wisdom of knowledge :
* How should we enrich the organic matter content of the soil and to retain it as legacy carbon ?
* How shall we regulate different carbon pools of soil vis-a-vis choice of crop?
* How does fallow period jeopardises the net gain in carbon through preceding crops ?
* What are the options of more recalcitrant forms of carbon and their potential role in long term sustainability in crop production ?
Thanks and kind regards
In soils normally the erosion losses of soil phosphate -P are considerable and they are monitored.The leaching losses are presumed to be negligible. Under what soil crop conditions the leaching losses of phosphate are considerable and need monitoring?
Which is the best way to improve the properties of the soil ( Physical, fertility, chemical, mineral and salinity) .? Do we leave the straw and use zero tillage, or tillage the soil and mix it with straw, or burn the straw and mix it with the soil by tilling?
Cation exchange is an important reaction in soil fertility, in causing and correcting soil acidity and basicity, in changes altering soil physical properties and as a mechanism in purifying or altering percolating waters.
The plant nutrients calcium, magnesium and potassium are supplied to plants in large measure from exchange forms.
Sulphate composts are useful for alkaline soils. There are huge amount of sulfur production during refinery processes. Sometimes these amounts of sulfur can not be directly used and should be converted into some other by-products. What is the easiest way to convert organic S into SO4 compost?
Though the earthworms are known to improve the soil fertility and physical properties that also help in making soil porous and higher yields. But, excessive earthworms especially in kitchen garden causes loss to the vegetable seedlings and other kitchen garden crops. Kindly suggest any organic or non-chemical way to control excessive earthworms in the kitchen garden or cultivable land.
Use of botanicals is very highly rated in today's agriculture represented by a variety of forms. Residue free agriculture prompts use of botanicals still highly used. Unfortunately botanicals don't have knock down effects on pests and diseases but still very effective. In this background , I have few quarries to addressed :
# Why don't we use botanicals active ingredients for different targeted problems , soil health vis- a- his plant health ?
# How does foliar spray of botanicals strengthen the plant immune system with respect elevation in accumulation of nutrients ?
# Is there systematic study on effect of botanicals on changes in soil fertility and soil biology ?
Quite appreciative of your time and interest..
Thank you and great regards
