Abstract

Global population is growing at a faster rate than the increase in the yields of crops which supply most of the plant nutritional needs. The growing population is a huge threat to food security. To fulfill the need of food it is essential to increase the crop yields. Fertilizers increase crop yields but without soil testing farmer may be applying too much food elements to the little needed plant and too little of another element which is actually the principle factor, limiting plant growth. The pH directly affects nutrient availability. Electrical conductivity (EC) level of the soil water is a good indication of the amount of nutrients available for crops to absorb. In present study an attempt has been made to assess the chemical properties, primary, secondary and micro nutrient of soil samples. The results reveal that the some sampling sites were affected by excess irrigation and use of chemical fertilizer. The some sampling sites shows organic carbon, potassium, magnesium, zinc, manganese and copper were very high.
