The crop nutrient management is carried out to improve productivity while protecting the environment. The primary principle of crop nutrient management is to balance the soil nutrient inputs with crop necessities. The crop nutrient management is a scientific approach to estimate and connect cultural practices with physical, chemical, and environmental aspects of an agricultural system. The crop nutrient management’s goal is to enhance the proficient use of both available and added nutrients while reducing effects on surrounding ecosystems.
Crop nutrient management planning needs the knowledge of the inputs and outputs of an agriculture system. Guidelines for the crop nutrient management have been made to measure/estimate the number of nutrients taken by a crop, the type, and quantity of nutrients mandatory by a vegetable, etc. These calculations often require soil and plant tests to determine the quality and quantity of nutrients accurately.

Global Crop Nutrient Management Market: Key Dynamics
Increasing demand for high agricultural productivity without affecting its quality
There is a rapidly increasing focus on protecting the water quality across the globe. The crop nutrient management is carried out to prevent the over-application of nutrients to keep water quality good and reduce the impact on the environment. Thus, to keep the environment clean and to maintain the water quality, there is increasing demand for the crop nutrient management across the globe, this is the crucial factor that is fuelling the growth of the crop nutrient management market. Moreover, increasing demand for high agricultural productivity is ultimately fuelling the growth of the crop nutrient management market which involves the determination of nutrients present in the soil, amount to be added to meet the requirements of crops. These factors are propelling the growth of the crop nutrient management market across the globe.
Initiatives taken by the various governments and the associations are propelling the growth of the crop nutrient management market
- Management practices for the agriculture are organized by the Agricultural Best Management Practices Task Force and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Durham, NH and provides a guide for growers for handling manure, agricultural compost and chemical fertilizer.
- Organizations such as CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF FOOD AND AGRICULTURE (CDFA) is creating a new FREP Database to provide CCAs (California Certified Crop Advisor) and other crop advisors with best management practice tools.
- The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) invites Minnesota farmers and crop advisers to participate in a unique on-farm nutrient management program that can help water quality while managing production costs.
On the other hand, less awareness about crop nutrient management in underdeveloped countries is the key factor that is hindering the growth of crop nutrient management. Also, less number of solution centers and service providers of the crop nutrient management in underdeveloped countries, and developing countries is hampering the growth of the crop nutrient management market.
