Abstract:

A detailed soil survey was carried out at tribal area in Chikaldhara tahasil of Maharashtra state during the year 2015-2017. In present investigation data on natural resources such as soil fertility and present land use system aspect were generated studied and analysed. The study covered whole tribal area to identified different landform units to understand the soil heterogeneity as well as the present land use. Based on the visual observations Twenty (20) representative spot were selected for sampling and analysed for pH, Electrical conductivity, Organic carbon, available Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium and available Micro nutrient (Zn, Mn, Fe and Cu) by using standard analytical methods. Based on soil fertility status the pH of Chikhaldhara soils were slightly acidic to slightly alkaline in nature and organic carbon were low to medium. Nutritionally, soils in this high rainfall region showed lower content of available N and P and medium in available K however, medium to higher in available micronutrient status viz. Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu Therefore there is need of proper land use according to capability of land by identifying the constraints for the production of available land. In order to use the land resources optimally on sustainable basis and also adaptation of management practice for increasing the fertility of soil.
