Abstract:
This experiment target measuring soil properties (pH, EC and OC), nutrient (N, P, K and S) and the correlation study between soil properties and nutrient availability. Six different locations in Havalbag block, Almora district of Uttarakhand, were sampled for soil (0-15cm depth). Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium and Sulphur nutrient in soil were examined using known conventional methods. Available Nitrogen was examined by alkaline KMnO4 method, extractable available Sulphur by CaCl2 method, available Potassium and available phosphorus by Morgan method. The soil pH showed a positive and significant correlation with available Nitrogen. The OC and EC showed a positive correlation with available S for the entire area of study. After analyzing all nutrient indices, the soils under study were found to be high in extractable S and medium in P extractable K and low in and N.
