Abstract:

Soil test based nutrient management has emerged as a key issue in efforts to increase agricultural productivity and production since optimal use of nutrients, based on soil analysis can improve crop productivity and minimize wastage of these nutrients, thus minimizing impact on environmental leading to bias through optimal production. Governments do efforts towards these through Soil Health Cards. The present study was conducted in Navsari district of South Gujarat region. All the taluka were selected for the present study. The data were collected with help of well-structured interview schedule following personal interview methods. It was found that majority (70.83 per cent) of the SHC holders had moderate level of perception about followed by 15.00 and 14.17 per cent possessed good and poor level of perception about Soil Health Card, respectively.
