Wetland soil and nutrient variability in Haors of Sunamganj District, Bangladesh

Author(s):

Abstract:
The study was carried out at three different haors of Sunamganj district to evaluate the status and variability of the Physico-chemical properties of soil. The properties of soil such as moisture content, texture, pH, electric conductivity, organic carbon and organic matter, available N, P, K, Mn and Fe were determined and analyzed following standard method and the soils from three different haors showed nutritionally fertile. The studied soil was dominated by Loam along with Clay loam and slightly acidic with a mean pH value 5.93±0.42. The N content was low and ranged from 0.025 to 0.392%, but the organic carbon (0.61±0.09%) and organic matter (1.05±0.16%) seemed higher. Accumulation of organic matter is an indication of a functional wetland. Concentration of available P, Mn, K and Fe was 0.82 µgg-1, 57.84 µgg-1, 115.03 µgg-1 and 261.85µgg-1 respectively. The nutrients of the soils seemed to be at a balanced condition with a variation among sites, seasons and haors for the successful growth of the plant.
