Abstract:
In order to determine the macro nutrients content (N.P.K) and some physico-chemical properties of the soils of different soil series around Tandojam, the soils samples were collected from six different soil series i.e Lalian, Miani, Pacca, Rustam, Shahdara and Sultanpur. The soils were generally heavy in texture, non-saline and low in organic matter. All the soil series were slightly to moderately alkaline in reaction (pH>7.0) and moderately calcarious in nature. The nitrogen contents ranged from 0.004-0.064%. The Available phosphorus contents ranged from 0.75-7.5 mg kg–1, whereas, exchangeable potassium varied from 100-440 mg kg–1. The N, P, K and Organic matter content were higher in the upper soil profile and decreased as the soil profile depths increased linearly.
