Abstract:

The research study was conducted in Mylavaram and Ibrahimpatnammandals of Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh to assess the utilization of soil health card recommendations by farmers in nutrient management in paddy, sugarcane, cotton, maize and black gram crops with the sample size of 150 soil health card holders. Utilization of macro nutrients as per recommendations was observed in paddy and black gram. Paired ‘t’ test revealed non- significant difference in utilization of macro nutrients between first and second year after the distribution of soil health card with respect to all crops. Significant difference in application of micro nutrients was found among paddy, sugarcane and cotton crops in successive years. Increase in mean yield of sugarcane from 403.14 quintals (before distribution of soil health card) to 412.57 quintals per acre was noticed after soil health card distribution. Significant difference in mean yield was also observed in sugarcane. In case of cotton, significant difference in mean yield was not noticed in the first year after utilization of soil health card while it was significant in second year.
