Abstract:

Seven representative soil profiles from different physiographic unit of Nanded district were selected and studied to assess the nutrient status of soils of cotton growing region of Nanded district of Maharashtra. Horizon wise nutrient status in soil profiles of Nanded area revealed that the soils were very low to low in available nitrogen (75.26 to 225.79 kg ha-1), low to medium in available phosphorus (3.5 to 17.92 kg ha-1), medium to high in available potassium (197.6 to 535.3 kg ha-1) and low to high in available sulphur (8.75 to 36.5 mgkg-1). The DTPA extractable available micronutrients Zn, Cu, Mn, Fe and B ranged from 0.224 to 1.18 mgkg-1, 0.86 to 4.946 mgkg-1, 4.13 to 27.09 mgkg-1, 10.03 to 21.92 mgkg-1 and 0.21 to 1.32 mgkg-1 (weighted mean) soil, respectively. Soils were very low to low in available nitrogen, low to medium in available phosphorus and medium to high available potassium and low to high in available sulphur in the surface horizons and deficient to sufficient in Zn and sufficient in available Cu, Fe, Mn and B in the surface layers of the profiles.
