In the study, it It was found that the application of fertilizers and micronutrients based on the Soil Health Map (SHC) recommendations resulted in 8-10% savings and an overall increase in crop yield to the tune of 5-6% reported adopting the recommendations of the SHC.

The National Agricultural Extension Management Institute (MANAGE), Hyderabad conducted a Soil Health Map (SHC) Program Impact Study (November 2017). The main findings were that there is some reduction in the use of fertilizers, especially nitrogen, and an increase in the use of biofertilizers and other micronutrients. Overall, rice farmers reduced urea use by 9%, diammonium phosphate (DAP) / simple super phosphate (SSP) by 7%, but increased potassium use by 20%. %. This is a healthy sign of progress towards a balanced use of fertilizers.
