Abstract:

A survey was undertaken during the year 2017 to study the soil properties of sewage water irrigated soils in Guravarajupalle village of Renigunta mandal of Chittor district in Andhra Pradesh. One hundred soil samples were collected at depth of 0-20 cm from Guravarajupalle village of Renigunta mandal by following random sampling method. The pH (6.05 to 9.26), EC (0.28 to 3.57 dSm-1) and OC (0.21 to 0.92 per cent)values indicated that the soils were found to be slightly acidic to strongly alkaline in reaction, non-saline to slightly saline in nature and low to high in organic carbon. The macronutrients were found to be in the range of low to medium in available nitrogen (100.16 to 363.50 kg ha-1), low to high in available P2O5 ( 3.06 to 308.28 kg ha-1) and K2O (42 to 515 kg ha-1). The available calcium [3.20 to 11.80 cmol (p+) kg-1] and magnesium [1.51 to 3.27 cmol (p+) kg-1] were found to be sufficient.
