Integrated soil fertility management in practice in western Kenya Integrated soil fertility management in practice in western Kenya which the visitors were welcomed by the director of KEFRI-Maseno, Dr M Gichora. Effect of Integrated Nutrient Management on Soil Fertility and Productivity in Maize R. Lalith Kannan*, M. Dhivya*, D. Abinaya*, R. Lekshmi Krishna* and S. Krishnakumar** * Vanavarayar Institute of Agriculture, Manakkadavu, Pollachi – 642103, India ** Assistant Professor, Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Definition and concepts of integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) system • 5. Review of the importance of integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) in increasing crop productivity • 6. Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) is important in production of vegetable crops which have short production cycles like tomato and require adequate supply of soil nutrients to improve crop productivity and ensure sustainable production (Mfombep et al., 2016). Integrated soil fertility management requires the active involvement of farmers and other stakeholders in decision-making, and calls for a more demand-led, participatory and flexible way of providing research, advi­ sory and training services to farmers. • Soil test correlations and calibrations for these tests are based on surface samples. Traditional farming systems in Sub-Saharan Africa depend primarily on mining soil nutrients. ments in soil fertility management. Overview of options for soil fertility improvement • 4. Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) is an approach to improve crop yields, while preserving sustainable and long-term soil fertility through the combined judicious use of fertilizers, recycled organic resources, responsive crop varieties, and improved agronomic As the clay content increases, so does the CEC, resulting in a greater ability to hold nutrients.

NRCCA Soil Fertility & Nutrient Management – Study Guide – 10/26/2016 5 o Texture is defined as the proportion of sand, silt and clay in the soil. ROLE OF ORGANIC MATTER AND HUMUS Increasing soil organic matter is a key aspect of an organic production system. integrated soil fertility management to maintain crop yield while balancing the economic benefits to farmers. The formation and Integrated soil fertility management (67% organic fertilizer + 33% inorganic fertilizer) was found to be most economically viable option to farmers as well as reducing soil degradation in the long term. Integrated Soil Fertility Management The ISFM paradigm shown in Figure 18.1 goes beyond the third paradigm to recognize the important roles that social, cultural, and economic processes play in soil fertility management strategies and also the many interactions that soil fertility has with other ecosystem services. B Vanlauwe then highlighted the scope of the field trip, followed by individual presentations by the PhD candidates (D Amudavi, M Kamau, J This section ends with an assessment of fer­ integrated soil fertility management, which call for combining organic and mi-neral nutrient sources with appropriate soil management practices and crop variety selection, and on the “4Rs” of nutrient stewardship, namely the need to determine - based on crop-and soil-specific investigation - … • 2. The African green revolution aims to intensify agriculture through the dissemination of integrated soil fertility management (ISFM).
