Phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) are essential for ensuring food security in India as well as worldwide. In acid soils of the world constituting 26% of world’s arable soils, low P availability.

Available nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium status of Indian soils [] Ramamoorthy, B. Bajaj, J.C. Access the full textCited by:   The status of available macronutrients [phosphorus (P) and potassium (K)] and soil organic carbon (SOC) of the surface soil under a rice–wheat cropping system was studied in 40 districts of the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) of India.

The soil samples were collected from the farmers' fields in four transects (Trans- Upper, Middle, and Lower Gangetic Plains) of the by: 3.

In a long‐term maize–wheat rotation at the Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana, India (subtropical climate), the effects of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) addition on soil fertility and forms of inorganic P and K in the plow layer of an alkaline sandy loam soil were measured after 11 and 22 years of by: 7.

In a field experiment initiated at the Central Soil Salinity Research Institute, Karnal in involving rice wheat cropping sequence and NPK fertilizer use on sodic soil (pHESP ), an attempt was made to evaluate the available P and K status of the soil and their uptake by the crops during –83 and 83– Application of P to either or both the crops significantly enhanced the Cited by: Indian soils not only show deficiency of primary nutrients (Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium) but also of secondary nutrients (Sulphur, Calcium and Magnesium) and micro nutrients (Boron, Zinc, Copper and Iron etc.) in most parts of the country.

These soil fertility categories gauge the probability of a plant showing a beneficial response to the addition of a given nutrient (assuming that other factors such as tem-perature, moisture, disease, etc.

are not limiting growth). The soil test categories as described in Table 1 are the basis for how much phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) to.

Effects of 50 years of fertilization with phosphorus and potassium on soil test levels and yields at six locations. Soil Science Society of America Journal – 46 Cope, J.T. Jr Rating Chart for Soil Test Data. Nutrient. Low. Medium. High. Organic carbon %. Available nitrogen (N) Kg/ha. Available Phosphorus (P) 22 Kg/ha.

Available potassium (K) Kg/ha. Soil Types. Acids. Phosphorus and potassium, along with nitrogen, make up the "big three" of crucial soil nutrients. In fact, phosphorus and potassium represent. Phosphorus Status of Soils in India Figure ble P status of soils in India.

Phosphorus (P) is one of the three major nutrients required in crop nutrition, the other two being nitrogen (N) and potassium (K). Phosphorus plays many vital roles in crop growth and is referred to by many as the “king-pin” in Indian agriculture. P needs of Indian soils and crops. Phosphorus Fertility Status in India Based on about million soil tests, percent of districts and Union Territories are low in available P, percent are medium, and percent are high (Hasan, ).

In comparison to an earlier compi-lation by Ghosh and Hasan (), this present survey indicates. The low use of potassium in crops is due to the perception that the Indian soils are rich in K, and reduction in potassium use will help the national exchequer as India imports its entire.

Current Science Potassium intensity, expressed by pK‐1/2 p(Ca 4‐ Mg) values, was determined by equilibrating soil with potassium in calcium chloride solutions. Such values were shown to be similar to those from soil‐solution extracts displaced by alcohol.

The potassium‐intensity status was highest in allophane soils and lowest in montmorillonite soils. There is an increasing concern about the sustainability of Indian agriculture because of deterioration in soil fertility. The data from soil testing laboratories and published literature were analyzed to determine the trend in fertility status of agricultural soils of India sincewhen the Green Revolution set in.

Based on the soil test values of N, P and K, soil samples were classified. Book Publishing WeChat (or Email:[email protected] Rice-wheat is the predominant cropping system of fertile soils of Indian, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal falling in the alluvial Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP).

Phosphorus (P) availability is commonly assumed to limit productivity in many tropical soils, yet there is relatively little information on the phosphorus chemical forms, distribution, and transformations that P undergoes in Ethiopian soils.
