Abstract

Nutritionists regard pulses as an essential means to correct malnutrition. However,
with increase in the world population, per capita availability of pulses is declining.
The pulse production has to be enhanced to provide sufficient amount of protein to
the increasing population. Pulses were grown under rainfed condition in soils of low
fertility and poor nutrient management. Research evidences show that the application
of organic manure to dry lands not only improves the soil fertility status but also
improves the water holding capacity of the soil. Judicious nutrient management
encompassing organic manure and inorganic fertilizers could bring out a definite
improvement in the cost of utilization of nutrient with increased nutrient use efficiency
and will certainly improve the productivity and economic returns.

Keywords
