Abstract:

Proper assessment of available micronutrient status in soil is very important as their deficiency and toxicity range in soil is quite narrow. Deficiency of micronutrient may be due to low total content of elements caused by soil factors reducing their availability to plants. The present study was taken up to identify the micronutrients status in soils of different districts of Odisha viz. Angul, Cuttack, Deogarh, Dhenkanal, Khurdha, Puri and Sambalpur. All the soil samples were found to be adequate in Fe content and it was found to be relatively high in coastal districts especially Puri. 66.42 per cent soils were sufficient and 33.57 per cent soils were deficient in Zn status whereas 80% soil samples were found to be deficient in available boron. The mean value for Mn and Cu ranged from 27.65 to 65.64 and 1.10 to 2.69 mg kg-1 respectively.
