An investigation was carried out to entitled on âVertical distribution of DTPA-micronutrients content ofsome selected pedons in hydromorphic soils of Khagaria districtâ. The DTPA Fe content of selected pedonswas ranged from 9.56 to 13.55 and 3.15 to 14.20 mg kg-1 soil at surface and sub-surface horizon. The DTPAMn content varied from 5.24 to 10.55 mg kg-1 soil in surface layer and 4.23 to 11.11 mg kg-1 soil in the subsurface layer. However, the available DTPA-Mn content increases towards depth except lower depth in all selected pedons (P1 to P6). The overall results have been indicated that DTPA-micro nutrient (Fe, Mn, Cu and Zn) contents show sufficiency level, and placed above their critical limits, which shows the congenial environment favoured for available micronutrients cations based on their geographical setting and suitable plant growth especially of hydromorphic areas.
