This study aimed to investigate the impact of integrated application of inorganic fertilizer (NPK) and farmyard manure (FYM) on soybean grain nutrient uptake and yield. We performed field experiments with treatments including 100% NPK, 150% NPK, 100% NPK+FYM and control (without fertilizer), and soil properties and plant parameters assessed. Greater effects on soil electric conductivity (EC), soil organic carbon (SOC), Soil N were recorded with treatments. However, soil P showed significant (P< 0.05) interaction with treatments and time. We found that integrated fertilizer application significantly (P<0.05) enhanced the nodulation rate, total chlorophyll, grain yield and grain nutrient uptake over control. Overall, integrated use of 100% NPK + FYM may optimize NPK uptake efficiency and reduce N fertilizer losses, which is necessarily required for the sustainable soybean production. This study concluded that FYM with 100% NPK is a best solution for the sustainable soybean production.
