Abstract:

The present study on the soil fertility status of available Calcium and Magnesium in soil by soil fertility mapping using GPS and GIS techniques of the Dharmaur micro-watershed Jagdalpur block, Bastar district of C.G. was conducted during 2017-18. The focus here was to prepare soil fertility mapping using GPS and GIS. . Soil fertility maps were adapted by using the Kriging technique of geostatistical interpolation method. Soil fertility mapping of the study area will be conducted on 1:10000 scale. Grid point based surface soil samples (0-15 cm) will be collected, dried, ground, and stored for laboratory analysis. A total of 382 soil samples were collected from the area covering most of Dharmaur, Kumhrawand and Tekameta villages and the study area is surrounded by Kumhrawand village to the East, Tekameta village to the West, Indravati river to the North and Bhadisgaon & Biringpal villages to the South. Crop productivity has decreased with time in the Bastar region. The reason for this decreased crop productivity can be attributed to excessive dependence on imbalanced application of fertilizers and mono-cropping in the region, which put the ability of the soil of the region to sustain agricultural plant growth under question. Thus, there is a need to carry out a soil fertility evaluation of the concerned region. Therefore, we chose Dharmaur micro-watershed, Jagdalpur Block in the Bastar region to conduct the study during 2017-18.
