Abstract:

An investigation was carried out to study the soil properties of Sarguja District. The main objective of this study is to collect information on soil pH, electrical conductivity, organic carbon, trance element N, P, K, Zn, and S. With the help of this study we found the value of pH is found varied from 6.9 to 6.08. It is slightly acidic in nature. The EC value is varied from 0.335 to 0.142 and it is normal. The value of OC% found is varied from 0.78% to 0.12% and this is low to medium level. The value of available nitrogen (kg ha-1) found is varied from 264 kg ha-1 to 173.4kg ha-1 and this is low level. The value of available phosphorus (kg ha-1) found is varied from 25.4 kg ha-1 to 10.5 kg ha-1 and this is low level. The value of available potassium (kg ha-1) found is varied from 110.4 kg ha-1 to 138 kg ha-1 and this is low level. The value of available sulphur (ppm) is found varied from 18.5 ppm to 9.6 ppm and this is low to medium level. The value of available zinc (ppm) is found varied from 1.62 ppm to 0.8 ppm and this is medium to high level.
