Abstract:
In the present research was to study the soil fertility status from the farmer’s field in the micro-watershed of Pudukkottai taluk, Tamil Nadu during January 2021. The processed 15 soil samples were taken from plough depth were analysed for pH, EC, macronutrient, and micronutrients by standard procedures. Results indicated that many of the soil nutrient levels decrease such as pH found to be 5.82 to 8.05, EC ranging from 0.09 to 0.43 dS/m indicated the safe for all agricultural crops, OC was found to be 0.3 to 9.4%, N was found 46.2 to 107.8 Kg/ha, P was found 7.5 to 60 Kg/ha, K was found as 50 to 170 Kg/ha, Zn was found as 0.598 to 0.905 ppm, Cu was found to be 0.566 to 0.906 ppm and Mn was found to be 3.75 to 7.329 ppm. This information of nutrient status will help farmers in improving soil fertility.
