Greengram (Vigna radiata L.) is one of the most ancient and extensively grown pulse crops of India. Greengram is a thermo-insensitive, low input requiring drought resistant and short duration crop. Nitrogen is one of the most important major plant nutrients, which plays a vital role in all living plant tissues and constitutes about 1-4 % of the dry weight. Recent researches on integrated nitrogen management have provided exciting opportunities for sustaining the desired crop productivity with minimum deleterious effect on soil health environment. This book provides the most updated and comprehensive information on Integrated nitrogen management in summer greengram to ensure sustainable productivity and to reduce expenditure on the cost of chemical fertilizers. The text is divided into 7 sections: (i) Introduction, (ii) Review of literature, (iii) Materials and methods, (iv) Experimental results, (v) Discussion, (vi) Summary and conclusion and (vii) References. The chapters have been thoroughly edited and presented in an easily understandable manner.
