Soil Health Vital To Improve Agriculture Productivity

Imbalance use of fertilizers is damaging fertility of soil and resulting in low productivity, said cotton expert, Dr Sagher Ahmed, a Ph.D scholar and progressive farmer. Soil health was ignored across the country by the farmers due to lack of awareness and information.  The use of nitrogen and phosphorus are still under-dose adding that potassium and some micro nutrient including boron, zinc, manganese, iron etc were ignored during preparation of soil. Farmers should keep focus on soil analysis. He suggested that government should ensure quality seed, subsidy on fertilizers, farmer’s education-awareness, and stop urbanization on fertile land.
