Intensive agriculture system, while increasing food grain production, has caused second-generation problems concerning nutrient imbalance. Some, other problems like greater mining of nutrients from the soil, soil fertility depletion, emerging multiple nutrient deficiencies, secondary and micronutrients, fall of the water table and deteriorate water quality, decline organic carbon and an overall deterioration in soil health. In INM, crop yields can be increased while minimizing nutrient losses to the environment by managing nutrient supply in the root zone within a reasonable range, Soil physico-chemical and biological properties are closely related with SOC and OM, thus, any soil management practices that enhance soil organic matter, microbial biomass and soil health, for this, combined use of organic and inorganic nutrient sources might be the right proposition for these soils, primarily for the improvement of soil health.. The research main motive was to find out the best-integrated practice which can be used to find out the best INM practice that can help to overcome this problem.
