Abstract:

This investigation was undertaken to evaluate the status of soil chemical properties, macro and micro nutrients in the zunheboto district of Nagaland under Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Nagaland University. Altogether 16 villages were covered comprising of 240 farmers under this survey. The soil samples were collected from the jhum fields and further analysis of soil pH, EC, OC, N, P, K, Zn, B and S were done using the mini soil test kit - Mridaparikshak. Soil Health Cards were issued for a period of 2 years and thereafter renewed. It was observed that the soils were mostly red sandy loam to clay loam in texture, pH is moderately acidic varying between 6.0-6.4, EC is non-saline ranging between 0.24-0.44 dSm-1, OC ranged from low to medium between 0.27-0.63%, available nitrogen varied from low to medium between 229-293 kg ha-1, available phosphorus varied from low to medium between 8.89-21.21 kg ha-1, medium in available potassium ranging from 187.23-257.81 kg ha-1, low to medium in available Sulphur varying between 10.30 to 24.1 kg ha-1, low in available Zn ranging between 0.03-0.26 mg kg-1 and low in available B varying between 0.01-0.19 mg kg-1.
