In order to determine how growing the green manure crop Dhaincha (Sesbania sesban) in acidic soil conditions affected the soil characteristics, nutrient availability, and rice productivity, among other things, a field study was conducted in the crop cafeteria at Galgotias University's School of Agriculture in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh from July 2019 to July 2022. As per the study, the green manure performed patch considerably increased the change in the soil physical qualities and availability of nutrients. In comparison to plots where Sesbania sesban was not grown-up as a green manure crop in the introduction of Sesbania sesban increased paddy output.  The field investigation, which was carried out in the university's cafeteria in 2018, discovered that the soil's pH was 8.75, slowly and steadily improving to 8.0. The amount of soil organic carbon was low in 2018 at 0.27, 0.35 in 2019, 0.39 in 2020, and 0.45% in 2021, respectively. The application of green manure, vermi-compost, cow dung manure, gypsum, and Sesbania (Sesbania sesban) as part of an approved scientific method led to an improvement in soil quality. This also led to an increase in the production of agricultural crops.
