Abstract:

The DTPA extractable cationic micronutrients, sulphur and some important soil physico-chemical properties were investigated in two cropping system of Ramanathapuram district of Tamil Nadu using GPS technique. Considering the critical limits of soil micronutrients, all soil associations were not adequately supplied with DTPA extractable micronutrients in rainfed chillies and rice cropping systems. Irrespective of cropping systems, the DTPA extractable cationic micronutrients were positively related with organic carbon content and negatively related to calcium carbonate content. Deficient soil samples were found in both cropping systems.


Keywords: DTPA – extractable micronutrients, sulphur, soil physical and chemical properties, cropping system
