Abstract:

Soil test crop response correlation study was carried out in midland inceptisols of Bastar plateau zone of Chhattisgarh (India) during 2012-13 taking potato (kufri pukhraj) as test crop to quantify production in the context of the variability of soil properties and recommendation of balanced fertilizers with organic manure based on targeted yield concept. The basic data required for formulation of fertilizer recommendation is derived from this experiment. Nutrient required to produce one quintal of potato tuber was found to be 0.48 kg N, 0.11 kg P and 0.52 kg K, respectively. The fertilizer efficiencies of N, P and K for potato crop were estimated as 32.94, 28.30 and 97.40 per cent, respectively. The efficiencies of soil test values were 16.42, 64.47 and 18.33 per cent for N, P and K, respectively. The efficiencies of organic source (FYM) were observed as 11.09, 5.88, 5.55 per cent for N, P and K, respectively. With the help of above basic data base, the fertilizer recommendation equations and the ready reckoner was developed which will be useful for soil test based balanced and integrated nutrient management in potato crop under midlands and other similar soil and agro-climatic conditions.
