Abstract:

The present study revealed that pH of pear orchard soils increased with decrease in altitude while as organic carbon decreased with decrease in altitude. The textural class of soils ranged between clay loam to silt clay loam with normal electrical conductivity. The available nitrogen status was low to medium, whereas, available phosphorus status was medium to high and available potassium status was high. The effect of altitude on the available nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium was found significant statistically, thereby showing that altitude bears effect on their content in pear orchard soils of Kashmir.
