Soil fertility; Plant nutrients


A field investigation was carried out in Kotchandpur to find out the comparative nutrient status, viz. pH, N, P, K, S, Zn and B. 70 soil samples from four representating soil series namely Ghior, Gopalpur, Iswardi and Sara were collected and analysd in the regional laboratory of SRDI, Daulatpur, Khulna. The pH of the collected soil samples indicated neutral to slightly alkaline in nature except some soils of medium low land under Ghior soil series and medium high land under Ishwardi soil series that were acidic in nature. K, SO4-S and B deficiencies were not too severe as that of nitrogen, phosphorus and zinc deficiency. The database may be used as a basis for conducting priority research programme.
