Correlation Study Between Soil Nutrient Indices and Yield of Wheat and Barley in the Ganjabasar Region of Azerbaijan

V.V. Bashirov

The objective of this study is to investigate the correlation between soils nutrient regime indices and the yield of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum) and barley (Hordeum vulgare), the main cereal crops of the Ganjabasar region. Using experiments planning method a regional (the Ganjabasar region of Azerbaijan) conceptual and mathematical model was developed for soils fertility management. In this regional fertility model, all indices of fertility criteria of researched soils were combined in 5 blocks (agroecology, soil content, soil nutrient regime, soil properties and agromelioration). Unlike the prior models, included are Immediate Nutrient Reserve (ImdNR), Intermediate Nutrient Reserve (IntNR) and Potential Nutrient Reserve (PNR) forms to the list of criteria of soil nutrient regime block in the regional fertility model using the Gorbunov method. The majority of the correlation relations were consistent (0.56 < r < 0.89). Among the variables of soil nutrient regime, total nitrogen content, Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC), Immediate Nutrient Reserve (ImdNR) of phosphorus and potassium consistently correlated and Intermediate Nutrient Reserve (IntNR) of phosphorus and potassium were slightly correlated in yield, of which CEC and IntNR of P and K was steady but others were dynamic variations. It revealed that in the final mathematical models, 71% of wheat yield variability was accounted for variation in above dynamic indices.
