CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACT ON BENEFICIAL SOIL MICROBIAL COMMUNITY: A REVIEWVinod Kumar, A.K. Rawat and F.C. Amule
Global climate change, mainly temperature rise and increased carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration, is a global concern. The inter-annual climatic variability is prominent and significantly influences the agricultural production. Soil productivity is influenced by the amount and activity of benefit soil micro-organisms, which help in degrading the matter as well ascertaining the availability of plant nutrients. It is essential to reduce the emission of CO2 and other major greenhouse gases (GHGs) through the implementation of various strategies in the land use planning and by increasing the soil organic matter by adoption of various techniques which will not only help in reducing the greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating the impact of climate change on beneficial soil microbial community but also allow additional benefits to the farmer in the form of reduced labour, costs, greater efficiency, improved soil quality along with sustainable crop production.
