Abstract:

The present study was conducted during the year 2018 and 2019 at Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Dr Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola, Maharashtra with an aim to know the macro and micronutrient status of soils of Washim road farm, Dr. PDKV Akola. Grid based (GPS) forty-four (44) surface (0-20 cm depth) soil samples were collected by grid survey method at 200m distance from Washim road farm and analyzed as per standard procedure for judging chemical properties and available nutrient status of soil. The results indicate that all the soils were slightly alkaline to moderately alkaline in reaction and free from soluble salt hazard. Organic carbon content were ranged from 2.34-8.97 g kg-1, soils of Washim road farm was moderately calcareous to calcareous due to presence of CaCO3 in soil. Nutrient index value (NIV) showed moderate for organic carbon, phosphorus and available Sulphur whereas moderately high for CaCO3, very low for available N and very high for available potassium. Among available micronutrients Fe, Zn, Mn showed low nutrient index value (NIV), Cu found to have high nutrient index for Washim road farm. In Washim road farm statistical correlation ship showed significant and positive correlation of organic carbon with ECThe DTPA extractable Fe (r= 0.303*). and Mn (r= 0.321*) showed positive and significant correlation with available N.
