Abstract:

An investigation was carried out for Characterization of rice growing soil of Nagara block of Ballia district, (U.P.) India. Depth wise soil samples were collected from two selected village and in this respect a soil profile was opened in each village. Soil samples were collected from 0-15, 15-30, 30-45, 45-60, 60-75, 75-90, 90-105 and 105-130 soil depth. Standard method was followed for analysis of physico-chemical parameter of soil. Results revealed that pH of soil found to be slightly alkaline where EC was in normal range. Bulk density of soil found be (1.16 - 1.73 Mg m-³) and water holding capacity contained (20.4 - 37.5 %). Organic carbon content varied from (0.07 - 0.59 %). The soil was slightly moderately calcareous (0.39 - 1.37 CaCO3%). Available N, P, K, and S content in soil varied from (142.2 - 489.8 kg ha-1), (9.76 - 15.28 kg ha-1), (259.6 - 403.2 kg ha-1) and (9.25 - 16.25 kg ha-1). Micronutrients Fe, Cu, Zn and Mn content in soil from (2.37 - 9.02 mg kg-1), (1.31- 9.07 mg kg-1), (0.12 - 1.22 mg kg-1) and (0.18 - 4.83 mg kg-1) rang respectively.
