Mir spectroscopy: An innovative tool for soil quality evaluation

Debabrata Nath, Rajendra Bairwa and B Gowtham Singh
The demand for important soil quality indicators for evaluating and inspecting the impact and measuring the success of modern agricultural practices has increased. Hence studying of Soil quality with its different indicators like Physical chemical and biological is having its own importance. Soil physico-chemical and biological properties affect plant nutrient availability; measuring them by conventional laboratory methods is laborious and time-consuming. Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy provides a good alternative that may be used to enhance or replace conventional methods of soil analysis, as it overcomes some of their limitations. Spectroscopy is rapid, timely, less expensive, non-destructive, straight forward, sometimes more accurate than conventional analysis and do not use any toxic chemical. The methodology has sufficient accuracy across a range of soils for application to determine the effects of land-use on these key indicator soil properties.
