Abstract

Physico-chemical properties and fertility status of surface soils (0-15 cm) was studied in eighty (80) representative samples from mango orchards of Sindhudurg district. The study revealed that the sandy clay loam textural class was found to be dominant in all locations. The soils were moderate to strongly acidic reaction with low electrical conductivity and very high organic carbon content. The available nitrogen and potassium status were moderately high to high and available phosphorus status was very low to low. The exchangeable calcium and magnesium content was found low in these soils. The DTPA extractable micronutrients viz., Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu were sufficient in all soils.
