Abstract:

Soil is non-renewable natural resource and supports all the lives on earth. Soil nutrients are the major contributors towards soil fertility and cater to the needs of essential elements of plant. Jute is one of the important cash crops of West Bengal. Jute fibre quality is very much dependent on soil nutrients. A detailed soil nutrient status and Jute fibre quality of the Barasat-II block of North 24 Parganas District of West Bengal was investigated during 2017-18. Geo-referenced (GPS based) composite surface soil samples (15cm) and jute fibre samples were collected from seven Gram-panchayets of Barasat-II block. Soil samples were analyzed for pH, OC (%) and available N, P, K, Ca. Most of the soils were found to be clayey in texture. Jute fibre quality parameters strength and fineness were analyzed. A strong positive correlation between soil fertility parameters and fibre quality parameters were observed. The thematic maps of soil fertility and jute fibre quality (fineness, strength) were developed for facilitating decision making toward comprehensive development of jute sector.
