Soil Fertility and Productivity
Soil fertility and productivity is the ability of soil to sustain agricultural plant growth. It is the ability to supply essential plant nutrients and water in adequate amounts and proportions for plant growth and reproduction. Conventionally, soil fertility is referred to as soil health. So, a Soil Health Card (SHC) contains information on the nutrient contents of the soil, pH, EC and Organic Carbon, and does not reflect the actual health of the soil.
