Author(s): Lavkush Singh, SP Singh, PK Sharma and Avnish Pandey

Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Effect of sodicity levels on nutrient status of ber (Zizyphus mauritiana Lam.) leaves” was carried out at Nursery of Horticultural Crops, Department of Horticulture, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi district of Uttar Pradesh during the year 2014-2016 in plastic pot to assess the nutrient status of six commercially ber cultivars viz., Banarasi Peondi, Banarasi Karaka, Umran, Gola, Ponda and Narendra Ber Selection-2 with different level of sodicity (Normal Soil 15%, 30%, 45% and 60%). The experiment was laid out in factorial CRD with 3 replications. The data recorded on nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium in leaves. It was found that nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium in leaves decreased and sodium increased with increasing levels of sodicity in all cultivars. However, the maximum nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium recorded in leaves of Banarasi karaka and sodium in Umran.
