Abstract:

An investigation was undertaken at, Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, College of Agriculture, UAHS, Shivamogga to a study of selected carbon fractions in soil under Areca nut based cropping systems of coastal zone (10) of Karnataka. Among the cropping systems studied, arecanut + mixed recorded higher mean potassium permanganate oxidizable organic carbon(1387.33mg kg-1), cold water extractable carbon (391.63mg kg-1), total carbon (23.52 g kg-1), total organic carbon (18.70g kg-1), total inorganic carbon (0.0.1618g kg-1) and soil microbial biomass carbon (373.33mg kg-1) fractions as compared to other cropping systems and decreases with lower depth and carbon fractions were higher in 0-30cm soil depth.


Keywords: Carbon fractions, Areca nut based cropping systems
