Effect of soil solarization on physio chemical properties of soil under protected cultivation


Author(s): Supriya Gupta, RP Singh and Pankaj Rautela

Abstract:
Solarization may bring complex changes in physicochemical properties, like organic carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, pH, EC etc. that affects soil micro flora and soil micro fauna. The study conducted under different polyhouse conditions for 45 days, revealed thatsolarization results in slight change in the pH and EC of the soil, the status of nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus were raised substantially whereas there was a reduction in the status of organic carbon, the maximum decrease in organic carbon of 19.6 per cent was recorded in controlled polyhouse. The amount of phosphorus increased in solarized soils with maximum increase of 26.1 per cent in open field solarized soil. Amount of potassium increased by about 30.6 per cent in open field solarised conditions. Nitrogen increased enormously from 62.72 to 100.32 kg/ha in controlled polyhouse.
