Author(s): AC Patel, AK Patel, RP Pavaya and VR Patel
Abstract: A study was carried out for evaluating soil fertility with respect to available N, P, K and S status of soils in Sabarkantha district of Gujarat. The soil samples (0-15 cm depth) were collected from 8 talukas of Sabarkantha district of Gujarat. Results revealed that soils are slightly neutral to mildly alkaline in reaction with low soluble salt content. The content of organic carbon and available N were classified in low category. The status of available P and S was medium while status of available K was high. Based on overall nutrient index of soils of Sabarkantha district, available N was classified in low; available P and S in adequate; available K in high fertility status.
