Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted during the year 2020 and 2021 in different blocks of district Kanpur Nagar, Uttar Pradesh. The twenty-seven soil samples were collected from different blocks of district Kanpur Nagar from different depth (0-15, 15-30 and 30-45 cm) at the farmer’s fields. Longitude and latitude (260 34' 12.16'' and 800 75' 07.61'') positions of experimental sites were mentioned in abstract. After an analysis of the soil samples the pH value varied from 7.03 to 8.52, 7.08 to 9.23 and 7.24 to 9.75, EC value was ranged from 0.13 to 0.35, 0.10 to 0.30 and 0.07 to 0.15 dS m-1 and the Organic Carbon % was ranged from 0.19 to 0.49, 0.16 to 0.36 and 0.10 to 0.21%. Nitrogen was ranged from 148.12 to 234.68, 126.42 to 213.71 and 96.30 to 192.81 kg ha-1. Phosphorus was varied from 4.15 to 21.82, 1.11 to 19.25 and 0.20 to 13.84 kg ha-1. Potassium was ranged from 94.30 to 265.78, 80.83 to 245.50 and 48.23 to 232.09 kg ha-1. Calcium was varied from 1.45 to 2.90, 1.20 to 2.63 and 0.70 to 2.02 cmol (p+) kg-1. Magnesium was ranged from 0.26 to 2.20, 0.20 to 1.80 and 0.20 to 1.42 cmol (p+) kg-1. Sulphur was ranged from 4.73 to 9.35, 3.58 to 7.80 and 2.10 to 6.84 ppm. Dry and wet soil colour (Light yellowish brown, yellowish brown and brownish yellowish) and (dark greyish brown, dark brown and dark yellowish brown). All blocks having the sandy loam soil texture. The bulk density varied from 1.17 to 1.33, 1.23 to 1.42 and 1.29 to 1.48 Mg m-3. Particle density ranged from 2.22 to 2.40, 2.31 to 2.53 and 2.43 to 2.66 Mg m-3. The Water Holding Capacity of the different blocks of the Kanpur Nagar was ranged from 60.65 to 75.00, 55.00 to 73.33, and 65.56 to 83.87% and Pore Space percentage was varied from 42.39 to 50.84, 40.70 to 49.20, and 40.10 to 49.01%. All the above parameters of the physical and chemical soil properties as above mentioned in abstract.
