Abstract:

One of the most popular phrase in agriculture is the term “Soil Health”. The health of soil determines agricultural sustainability. Soil quality assessment is of paramount importance to know the appropriate management practices to be adopted for sustainable crop production. In this study, all soil chemical properties and available macronutrients status with their spatial variability in different blocks of Bundi district in Rajasthan was conducted. It is concluded that soil reaction was neutral to slightly alkaline with EC mostly below <1.0 dS m-1 which are favourable for crop production. The organic carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus content of these soils were found to be low to medium. Potassium was in high range. Calcium and magnesium were found to be adequate. The available sulphur in soil was recorded in medium range. Soil health and soil quality were found to be affected by the management practices adopted by the farmers and the degree of manure and fertilizer usage over a period of time. We concluded that there is a need of proper nutrition and management approaches for sustenance of soil health and soil quality which optimize the multiple functions of soil, conserve soil resources, support strategies for promoting soil health and soil quality are important. The use of organic manure for fertilization management can be recommended as a means for promoting soil health and soil quality.
