Integrated Nutrient Management is one of the important issues for sustainable crop production. A field experiment was conducted during 2014-15 at the Agricultural Farm of Palli Siksha Bhavana (Institute of Agriculture), Visva- Bharati, Sriniketan to study the effect of combined application of organic and inorganic fertilizers on yield, nutrient uptake, and quality content along with microbial population in Lentil-Sesame-Rice cropping system. Highest yield, nutrient uptake and quality content were obtained in integrated application of organic and inorganic fertilizer treated plots. Micronutrients have a great impact on soil health in sustainable agriculture by improving growth, yield and fertility status of soils. Sulphur has a major role in case of yield, uptake and oil content of sesame.
