Agriculture is the backbone of India as Agriculture is major occupation. There is a need to increase production and productiv - ity, for this we have to overcome the many problems, one of these is utilization of Manure and Fertilizer for sustainable agri - culture. Manure and fertilizers are important sources of nutrients for crop production, both referring to substances added to soil for the establishment, improvement and maintenance of fertility. The correct combination of application of Fertilizers and ma - nures are the most confusing concepts for the common farmer. We conducted a survey to know the lacunas between agriculture scientists and farmers on usage proportion of fertilizers and manures for sustainable agriculture. Survey tells that, Agriculture scientists recommend 35:65 proportion of fertilizers and manure for average crop yield, but still farmers are using 80:20, Agricul - ture scientists prefer soil testing and to apply recommended quantity but only few farmers are up to that. Agriculture scientists say there will be fertilizers make plant susceptible to disease and pest, it causes soil compaction and there will be drastic effect if we use more than recommended fertilizers, but it will harm soil health but common farmer is far from this knowledge. Agricul - ture scientists say there will be different recommendation for fertilizers and manures for irrigated land and rain fed agriculture but most of the farmers think it is same. In this situation we are displaying the difference in opinion of Agriculture scientists and farmers understanding in 15Q questionnaire.
