Abstract:
An attempt has been made in the present study to evaluate the sulphur status of soils of South Saurashtra Agro-climatic Zone of Gujarat state by collecting two hundred seventy surface soil samples (10 soil samples from each taluka) from cultivated fields. The soil samples were analyzed for different forms of sulphur viz., total sulphur, organic sulphur, non-sulphate sulphur, available sulphur, sulphate sulphur and water soluble sulphur. In South Saurashtra Agro-climatic Zone, the water soluble sulphur ranged from 2.14 to 80.92 mg kg-1 with mean value of 21.39 mg kg-1. The overall range of sulphate sulphur was recorded as 0.506 to 68.62 mg kg-1 with mean value of 18.18 mg kg-1. Mean value of available sulphur was observed 25.77 mg kg-1 and it was ranged from 2.21 to 103.2 mg kg-1. The overall range of non-sulphate sulphur was 2.33 - 63.29 mg kg-1 with mean value of 25.37 mg kg-1. On the basis of overall data, organic sulphur ranged from 82.85 to 3180 mg kg-1with mean value of 649.7 mg kg-1. The overall range of total sulphur was 128.4 – 3216 mg kg-1 with mean value of 693.3 mg kg-1.
