Apart from water shortage, the productivity in rain-fed systems is also constrained by low soil fertility. The soils in the SAT regions generally have low organic matter and nutrient reserves. Extensive survey of the farmers’ &elds in the SAT regions of India revealed that the de&ciencies of sulfur, boron and zinc are very widespread and in most cases 80-100% farmers’ &elds were found critically de&cient in these nutrients. This paper underscores the need to integrate soil and water conserving practices with balanced nutrition of crops by adopting INM.
