Abstract:

A study was conducted to assess the soil fertility constraints in coastal cultivated soils in Aghanashini estuary of North Karnataka district, Karnataka. Soil sampling (0-20 cm depth) was done by imposing grids of 10 x 10″ (300 x 300 m) intervals in the study area. The collected soil samples were analysed for pH, EC, organic carbon, available macro nutrients, available sulphur and available micronutrients. Soils of the estuary were extremely acidic to moderately acidic with high level of soluble salts. Soil organic carbon was low to medium. The soils were low in available nitrogen and phosphorus and low to medium in available potassium and sulphur content. Among the micronutrients, iron, copper and manganese were sufficient in nature, while, zinc was sufficient to deficient in the study area.
