Integrated Nutrient Management for Food Security and Environmental Quality

Kinde Lamessa


One of the most important challenges facing humanity today is to conserve/sustain natural resources, including soil and water, for increasing food production while protecting the environment. Integrated nutrient management (INM) system or integrated nutrient supply (INS) system aims at achieving a harmony in the judicial and efficient use of chemical fertilizers in conjunction. INM addresses environmental consideration by tailoring nutrient application to crop needs and soil conditions in order to eliminate both excessive applications that increase potential loss to water or air and insufficient application that result in soil fertility degradation. Integrated nutrient management holds great promise in meeting the growing nutrient demands of intensive agriculture. It can also help in maintaining production sustainability without deterioration in quality of plants environment
