MICRONUTRIENT STATUS AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH SOIL PROPERTIES OF PUSHKAR SUB-TEHSIL OF AJMER DISTRICT (RAJASTHAN), INDIAD.P. Singha R. K. Singha and K.K. Yadav
Seventy surface soil samples were collected from twenty two villages of Pushkar sub-tehsil of Ajmer district. The soils were analyzed for texture, physico-chemical properties and status of available micronutrients. The majority of soils were found sand dominated in nature and their texture varied from loamy sand to sandy loam and slightly calcareous in nature. Most of the soils have low organic carbon and cation exchange capacity with slightly alkaline and non-saline in nature. Mainly soils under study were found deficient in available manganese and zinc, moderately sufficient in available iron, while, adequate in available copper and boron. The availability of micronutrients in soils affected significantly by soil properties viz. texture, organic carbon, CaCO3, CEC and pH2 of soils.
