Abstract:

A study was carried out to assess the available nutrient status in soils of Kumbhi block under Lakhimpur (Kheri) district (U.P.). In that context 60 soil samples were collected from the different locations of Kumbhi block. Collected soil samples taken for laboratory analysis and analyzed the physico-chemical properties viz. pH, Electrical conductivity, Bulk density, Particle density, Water holding capacity, Organic carbon and status of available nutrients viz. nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur. The results shows that soil pH of Kumbhi block found majorly acidic in nature in 43.44% of soils, organic carbon (0.12-0.65) content is low in 65 %. EC, BD, PD, WHC were ranged between 0.11-1.05 dSm-1, 1.20-1.56 Mg m-3, 1.24-2.43 Mg m-3, 24.00-77.66% respectively. Status of available nutrients viz. Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium and Sulphur were ranged between 123.25-484.07 kg ha-1, 12-33 kg ha-1, 235-384 kg ha-1 and 10.5-30.9 kg ha-1 respectively.


Keywords: Organic carbon, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sulphur.
