Abstract:

Experiential Learning has been recognized as an important part of the agricultural education process. Through practical experience students apply what they have learned in real situation thus the material becomes understandable and usable. Agricultural education has always emphasized the “learning by doing” theory so when using experiential learning, students must practice in real model and procedures. This study was undertaken in 2016-2017 by Division of Soil Science and Agri. Chemistry, Ratnai College of Agriculture, Akluj, India. In this module of experiential learning students collected 101 soil samples from Malshiras tahsil and analysed physico-chemical and chemical properties of different soils. In physico-chemical analysis average pH 7.86 which is slightly alkaline in reaction, EC-0.544dS/m which safe in soluble salt concentration, O.C-0.47 % is low to medium and CaCO3- 4.15% which indicates calcareous condition. In general, it showed that the properties like pH, EC, Organic carbon and CaCO3 contents were found to be decide the availability of nutrients in these soils. For macronutrients from the result average available Nitrogen present about 211.30 Kg/ha, available Phosphorus 11.49 Kg/ha and available Potassium 326.53 Kg/ha which indicates low status of N and P but Potassium content is very high in Malshiras tahsil soils. Thus, it can be concluded that soils of Malshiras tahsil are low to medium in fertility status.
