Soil nutrient management is necessary to maintain the constant productivity of nursery systems as well as good quality soil. Organic manure increased soil pH, the concentrations of nitrogen, phosphorus, and major cations. Nutrients available for plant uptake rise significantly in the experimental soil by organic manure application. Biofertilizers during the initial stage of growth, increases seedling vigour and enhance growth by improving root activity and robustness of seedling for proper field establishment. Inorganic fertilizers have a high nutrient content and require only a minimal amount for growth and biomass. Integrated Nutrient Management (INM) implies the most efficient use and management of organic, inorganic and biological sources of major nutrients as well as micronutrients to attain higher levels of seedling growth.
