Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to investigate the fertility status of the Jaunpur district. The study consisted of field survey of area, collection of soil samples and its analysis of soil physical properties and chemical properties in Soil Science – Soil and Water Conservation Laboratory, Rajiv Gandhi South Campus, Barkachha, Banaras Hindu University, Mirzapur. Results were revealed that physical property viz. bulk density ranged between 1.22 to1.38 Mg m–3, particle density ranged between 2.44 to 2.82 Mg m–3, WHC mean value of 41.59%, and most of the soils were loamy in texture and Chemical properties viz. soil pH varied from 7.1 to 8.5, EC ranged between 0.20 -2.10 dSm–1,organic matter varied from range 0.16 to 0.36%, nitrogen varies from 186 to 269 kg, phosphorus ranges between 23.5 to 50.3 kg ha-1 and potassium ranged from 325 to 489 kg ha- 1.
