Impact of fertilization with organic sources on carbon sequestration under different cropping system

Suresh Kumawat, Sundar Anchra, Shiv Chand Bawaliva and Sumitra Kumawat

With the changing climatic scenario, reduction in CO2 in atmosphere will be viable solution to reduce air temperature as well as production of temperature sensitive crops. Carbon sequestration is a new area for researchers. It is process by which carbon dioxide is taken out from the Earth's atmosphere and afterward stored into the soils. Most soils of agroecosystems having lower C pool than under natural vegetation cover. Some severely depleted and strongly eroded soils may have lost as much as 75% of the antecedent pool (Lal 2004). Thus, soils of agroecosystems have a C sink capacity which can be filled by sequestration of atmospheric CO2 as SOM and as secondary carbonates. With the increasing carbon content in soil, will leads to enhance chemical, physical and biological properties of soils. In India, lots of organic waste is available in urban as well in rural area. This can help to reduce the cost of cultivation by reducing the dependency on chemical fertilizer such as potassic and phosphate fertilizer those are mostly imported from foreign countries. Many authors have been reported that applications of organic fertilizer with organic sources were significantly improved different soil carbon pools as well as soil quality and soil health (Mandal et al., 2007; Benbi et al., 2012: Sofi et al., 2016). In the conclusion of this presentation, I would like to say sequestration of C into the soils improve the productivity and sustainability of soil
