Abstract:

The representative soil series of order Entisols, Inceptisols and Vertisols collected from agriculture college Kolhapur and different research stations of Sub-montane zone of Maharashtra were assessed for different forms of potassium and its distribution. The water soluble K contributed very lowest fraction than the rest of all forms of potassium (i.e. 0.23 % of total K). From the mean values higher water soluble K was noticed in Vertisols followed by Inceptisols and Entisols. Higher value of water soluble K was observed in surface layer and decreased with depth. Exchangeable K, non-exchangeable K and lattice K contributed 2.87, 8.97 and 87.81 per cent of total K, respectively. From the mean values, highest exchangeable K, non-exchangeable K, lattice K and total K were noticed in Vertisols followed by Inceptisols and Entisols. There was no any specific trend noticed with respect to depth wise distribution of different forms of potassium.


Keywords: Water soluble K, Exchangeable K, Non-exchangeable K, Lattice K, Total K and Sub-montane zone.
