Physico-Chemical Analysis of Soil Samples in Osmanabad District, Maharashtra

Authors(1) :-V. V. Naiknaware

Regarding yield of the crops and growth regulation fertility of soil is most important but today’s scenario of agriculture farming in India is not care about it. The present study has been undertaken to investigate the physic-chemical characteristics of soil samples collected from different villages of Osmanabad district, Maharashtra, India. The soil characterization was carried out for the parameters like PH, Electrical conductivity, Total organic Carbon,Nitrogen,Phosphorous(P2O5),Potassium(K2O).This study leads us to the conclusion of the nutrients quality of soil of different villages of Osmanabad district. The present study result shows that average all the villages of Osmanabad district have medium or high minerals content. This information will help farmers to solve the problems related to soil nutrients amount of which fertilizer to be added to increase the yield of crops.
