A field experiment was conducted to study the â€œInfluence of different sources of Liming materials on post-harvest properties of the soil for Maize crop Grown in Acid soil of Odishaâ€ in the village Bajpur in Khorda District of Odisha during Kharif, 2013.The soil was ameliorated with three different sources of liming materials (paper mill sludge @ 0.1LR, Stromatolyte @ 0.1 & 0.2 LR and Calcium Silicate @ 0.2 LR) added with soil test based dose with or without FYM. Results indicated the post-harvest soil properties indicated that the soil turned acidic irrespective of the amelioration measure taken. The carbon content also decreased irrespective of the treatments. Where N was not added from external source its status decreased but increased where it was applied. Irrespective of P application the status decreased but was maintained at higher level. The available K status decreased invariably in all the treatments except in control treatment. The S status in rest of the treatments increased compared to initial status in all the treatments except for control.
