Smriti Rao P, Tarence Thomas, Zineeka Singh, Rachana

A survey of chemical properties of soil of farmers of ‘Bastar’ an allied area of Chhattisgarh was carried out in 2014-15. The main objectives of this study was to collect information regarding soil macronutrient status and its relation to various chemical properties of soil, for this 6 sampling points were selected. Soil samples were collected at a depth of 0-15 and 15-30 cm and analyzed Nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), potassium (K). The N, P, K, ranged from 188.6-276.64, 7.62-10.72, 121-242.5, kg/ha respectively. By analyzing the Soil Sample, it was found to be slightly acidic. The nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium values are found to be low in all villages. There is an increasing awareness of the need to pay greater attention in the role of macronutrient enhancement in the soil for good soil health and proper nutrition of plant so as to attain optimum economic yield.
