Impact of inorganic and biofertilizers on soil properties: A review

Neeharika Parmar, Harmanpreet Kaur, Meera Thakur

Fertilization is done worldwide to improve soil fertility and to increase more yield per unit area. The single application of chemical fertilizers affects the soil properties and it may also causes acidification and decreased soil productivity on the long term. Number of reasons like the excessive use of chemical fertilizers, higher cost, shortage in supply, its polluting effect on environment as well as on soil health has lighted the attention towards other soil fertilization to increase crop production. In this paper we discuss the impact of inorganic and biofertilizers on soil properties and balanced fertilization. Biofertilizers supplements the essential plant nutrients for sustainable agriculture and economy. Numerous literature search revealed that these fertilizers can clean the environment and used together with inorganic fertilizers in balanced form can enhance the productive capacity of land and reducing the amount of chemical fertilizer consumption and improve plant growth and soil properties.
