Abstract:
The different land-use system has a significant impact on soil chemical properties. In order to ascertain the effect of different land-use systems on soil chemical properties, the present study was carried out at Norman E. Borlaug Crop Research Centre, G. B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar. The land-use systems selected for study were T1 (rice–potato–okra), T2 (rice–pea (vegetable)–maize), T3 (sorghum multi-cut (fodder)–yellow sarson–black gram), T4 (rice-wheat–green gram), T5 (rice–berseem + oat + mustard (fodder)–maize + cowpea (fodder)), T6 (guava + lemon), S7 (poplar + turmeric), T8 (eucalyptus + turmeric), T9 (fallow (uncultivated land))T1 (rice – potato – okra), T2 (rice – pea (vegetable) – maize), T3 (sorghum multicut (fodder) – yellow sarson – black gram), T4 (rice – wheat – green gram), T5 (rice – berseem + oat + mustard (fodder) – maize + cowpea (fodder)), T6 (guava + lemon), S7 (poplar + turmeric), T8 (eucalyptus + turmeric), T9 (fallow (uncultivated land)). The highest value of were obtained for organic carbon (1.51%), organic matter (2.59%), available soil nitrogen (312.00 kg ha-1), available soil phosphorus (24.80kg ha-1) and available soil potassium (259.11 kg ha-1) under T8, which was significantly higher than T9. According to the above-mentioned result, soil under agroforestry based land-use systems was found to be better soil fertility concerning soil chemical properties than other land-use systems.
