SHIVAKUMAR K. M., M. S. NAGARAJA

Abstract


An investigation was carried out to study the micronutrients status in soils of chilli grown
areas of UKP command at College of Agriculture, Raichur, during the year 2006-07. The
concentration of iron and manganese in soil samples collected before the crop season ranged
from 3.95 to 4.95 ppm and 23.03 to 25.87 ppm, respectively and their concentration increased
after the harvest of the crop. Similarly, the soil samples of experimental sites recorded moderate
levels of micronutrients did not vary significantly but the soil supplemented with organic
manures (Category-2 and category-4) recorded higher levels of micronutrients compared to
no organic manure added chilli cultivated soil samples (Category-3).
