Abstract:
An investigation entitled, “Fertility status of Soils from North Konkan Zone of Maharashtra’’, was conducted to study the physico-chemical properties, available macro and micronutrients of the soil samples collected from North Konkan zone of Maharashtra state. A total of 100 soil samples were collected from 10 Research Stations and farmers fields nearby the research stations of Dr. B.S.K.K.V., Dapoli using G.P.S. and were analyzed for physico-chemical properties (pH, EC and OC), available macronutrients (Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Sulphur) and available micronutrients (Iron, Manganese, Zinc and Copper) status of the soil.
The data revealed that the 100 analysed soil samples were moderately acidic to alkaline in soil reaction with normal electrical conductivity and high organic carbon. Analysis of available macronutrients revealed low to medium available nitrogen and phosphorous, low to very high available potassium, medium to very high exchangeable calcium, low to very high exchangeable magnesium and medium to high available sulphur. Further, analysis of available micronutrients showed that all the soils samples had sufficient available iron, manganese, copper and zinc, with few exceptions.
