A review on crop residue incorporation in soil under the rice: Maize-cropping system

Author(s): Dr. Mukesh Kumar Pandey and Ankita Singh

Present paper was a review crop residue incorporation in soil as an important practice in natural resources management as it helps maintain soil productivity and fertility. Crop residues, such as stalks, leaves, and stems, are rich in organic matter and nutrients that can benefit the soil and subsequent crops. When crop residues are incorporated into the soil, they contribute to the formation of organic matter, which improves soil structure and stability. Organic matter helps create pore spaces in the soil, allowing for better water infiltration and drainage. This is especially important in areas with heavy rainfall or compacted soils. In addition to improving soil structure, crop residue incorporation also enhances nutrient cycling in the soil. As the residues decompose, nutrients are released and become available for plant uptake. This reduces the need for synthetic fertilizers and promotes sustainable agricultural practices. Furthermore, crop residue incorporation can help control soil erosion. The residues act as a protective layer on the soil surface, reducing the impact of raindrops and preventing soil particles from being washed away. This is particularly crucial in areas with sloping terrain or high wind speeds.
To effectively incorporate crop residues into the soil, proper management practices should be followed. This includes shredding or chopping the residues to facilitate decomposition, adjusting the timing of incorporation to coincide with favorable soil conditions, and ensuring proper nutrient management to optimize nutrient release. Overall, incorporating crop residues into the soil is a valuable practice in natural resources management. It not only helps maintain soil productivity and fertility but also contributes to sustainable agriculture and environmental conservation. By implementing this practice, natural resources management professionals can continue their efforts in preserving and protecting our precious natural resources for future generations.
