Abstract:

Assessment of the soil fertility status in a Jamuna Paar area was carried out for efficient soil management and cropping systems for sustainable yields. Composite soil samples in surface soil and also sub-surface of different horizons from twelve locations were collected from the Jamuna area by considering their physiographic units. Samples were analyzed for available N, P, K, S and micronutrients such as Zn, Cu, Fe and Mn. The study indicated that the low content of nitrogen phosphorus and sulphur, medium to high in potassium content. Micronutrients such as Fe, Cu, Mn in sufficient amount and Zn was deficient noticed in this area. In soils were attributed to low application rates of organic material, high temperature and low rate of application of N fertilizers, especially in the rainfed areas. To build up organic matter and native nitrogen and maintain nutrient balance in the soil, farmers are advised to adopt FYM and ZnSO4 application, crop rotation and intercropping in the rainfed areas, whereas, in irrigated areas, crop rotation along with application of farm yard manure, ZnSO4 can enhance crop production and soil fertility.
