Abstract


The present study was conducted in saline affected villages of Purna river valley of Akola
district of Maharashtra to establish the soil, fodder and serum mineral interrelationship. Total
104 soils, 71 fodders and 360 serum samples of animals were collected and subjected for micro
mineral estimation. The study revealed non-significant multiple correlation co-efficient
between soil-fodder-animal for Cu, Fe and Mn, however, the direction between correlation
found positive, indicating the direct association between soil-fodder and animal. The overall
study concluded that the multiple correlation co-efficients between animal-soil-fodder for Zn
found highly significant indicated positive association between animal-soil-fodder for Zn in
saline tract area of Akola district. Present study concluded that low Zn content in soil reflected
in fodder grown on this soils and animals maintained in saline tract area of Akola district.
