Correlation between soil physico-chemical properties and available micronutrient in mustard grown area of Gharsana Tehsil of Rajasthan


Author(s): Mukesh Kumar, Sr Yadav and Mangilal

Abstract: Forty surface soil samples (0-15 cm) were collected from gharsana tehsil of Sriganganagar district were studied for the Zn, Fe, Cu and Mn status in relation to important soil factor. The pH value of soil ranged from 7.70 to 9.87 with a mean value of 8.89 indicating that the soils were, in general alkaline in reaction. The EC, O.C., CaCO3 and CEC ranged from 0.14 to 2.84 dSm-1, 0.04 to 0.26 per cent, 2.97 to 7.65 per cent and 6.08 to 11.61 cmol.(p+) kg-1 with the mean value of 0.52 dSm-1, 0.12 per cent, 4.91 per cent and 8.22 cmol.(p+) kg-1 respectively. All the soil sample had deficient in amount of available Zinc and Iorn and Sufficient in available Manganese content of soil. Zn, Fe, Cu and Mn are highly significantly positively correlated with organic carbon and negatively correlated with CaCO3 and sand content of soil. Clay content of soil highly significantly positively correlated with Fe and Cu but non-significant positively correlated with Zn. CEC contain of soil highly significantly positively correlated with Cu and Fe but non-significant positively correlated with Mn and Zn.
