Author(s): Tupaki Lokya, J Ravinder, Sugyata Shivhare and Harish Chandra Behera

Abstract: A pot experiment was conducted to assess “Effect of Integrated nutrient management practice on acidity and nutrient availability in acid soil” in The Dept. of Soil Science & Agricultural Chemistry, C.A. BBSR in Kharif (2016). The pot experiment was conducted in an acid sandy loam soil with Maize as the test crop (Hybrid). The experimental site experiences a warm and moist with hot and humid summer and mild winter. In each pot 5 kg of collected soil were filled up. Then 3 seeds were sown per pot. The treatments were given to Control (T1), Soil test based recommended dose (STD) (T2), Vermicompost (T3), Lime (T4), Lime + vermicompost (T5), STD + VC@ 2.5 t ha-1 (T6), STD + Lime (T7), STD + VC @ 2.5 t ha-1+ Lime (T8). The results of the present experiment indicated that combined aplication of STD + VC @ 2.5 t ha-1+ Lime was reduced the acidity and increase the nutrient availability in acid soil.
