Abstract:
A field experiment entitled “Evaluation of Organic Carbon Status in the soils of Saurashtra Region” was carried out during summer season of 2021. Samples were collected from each taluka of different districts of Saurashtra region and analysed at Department of Soil science and agricultural chemistry, College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh.
Based on analysed data of soil samples, collected from different district of Saurashtra region of Gujarat, it can be concluded that soil of Saurashtra region was medium in Organic Carbon status with mean value of 0.57 per cent, whereas Porbandar district found highest organic Carbon percentage with 0.82 per cent value and Surendranagar district found lowest organic carbon percentage with 0.44 per cent. According to Nutrient index value, Porbandar, Gir-Somnath and Devbhoomi Dwarka district covered very high area of having Organic carbon per cent. Bhavnagar, Amreli, Rajkot and Surendranagar found very low organic carbon per cent area. Junagadh and Jamnagar covered medium area of having Organic carbon per cent. Morbi district covered high area of having Organic carbon per cent.
