Estimation of micronutrients in soil using geo-statistical approach

Author(s):

Abstract:
Deficiency of micronutrients in the soil during the last three decades have been increased because of increased use of chemical fertilizers and high yielding crop varieties along with increased cropping intensity. Farmers must have the knowledge of micronutrients content in their soil to maintain soil health. In this study, an attempt has been made to estimate the soil micro nutrient status using geo-statistical approach for lingsugur block of Raichur district (Karnataka) using 100 soil samples data along with GPS coordinates. The Kriging interpolation method (Krige, 1951) was used for preparing the micronutrients (Zn, Cu, Mn & Fe) maps to show spatial distribution of micronutrients in entire block. The method can be used to estimate the content of micronutrients in unsamples areas of the block.
