Abstract:

The present investigation has been designed to analyse the Geo-information based soil fertility status and to prepare GPS-GIS based soil fertility maps with respect to soil pH, organic carbon, available N, P and K for soils of Deogarh district located in North-Western Plateau Agroclimatic Zone of Odisha, India. Results revealed that, soil pH varied from 3.8 to 8.3 with a mean value of 5.5; that of soil organic carbon from 0.2 to 18.0 g kg-1 with a mean value of 6.6g kg-1. Soils are safe for all types of crop production with respect to the soluble salt content. Soil available N content varied from 87.5 to 237.5 kg ha-1 with a mean value of 123.5 kg ha-1; that of available P content from 4.0 to 65.3 kg ha-1 with a mean value of 13.8 kg ha-1 and that of available K from 37.0 to 787.0 kg ha-1 with a mean value of 288.4 kg ha-1.
