- Integrated plant nutrition system (IPNS) is a concept to integrate all available means of soil, nutrients and crop management so as to achieve optimum productivity and sustainability.
- It also includes the complementary and efficient use of external inputs where locally available sources of plant nutrients are not sufficient to achieve an optimum yield.
- It emphasizes on the principle that fertilizer and manure should be applied on the basis of soil fertility status, crop demand and available resources.
- It is therefore, an approach that seeks to both increase agricultural production and safeguard the environment for the future.
