      <Abstract>When it comes to fruit cultivation, nutrient management is of the utmost importance if one wants to acquire fruit of a good grade. Inappropriate nutrient management and indiscriminate use of chemical pesticides are both detrimental to the health of plants and the environment, as well as to the human beings who consume them. Because of the indiscriminate use of inorganic agrochemicals, the qualitative characteristics of a variety of fruits have been adversely affected. This has led to a decline in quality, which has decreased customer choice and resulted in lower returns for the producers. Not only can an excessive supply of inorganic nutrient sources, such as fertilizers, have a negative impact on the quality of the fruit and its overall productivity, but it also depletes the nutrient reserves that are present in the soil. However, INM is a method that contributes to the preservation of the soil__ampersandsign#39;s health. Integrated nutrient management, also known as INM, refers to the practice of applying all possible sources of nutrients, both organic and inorganic, to crop production at the same time. As a result, the INM assists the plants in satisfying their nutritional requirements while also restoring the fertility of the soil.</Abstract>
