Soil analysis report

  • The ‘Amrit manure” is having neutral pH and organic carbon content of 8.45g in 100 g of manure.  Further it is rich in both total and available nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium content. The calcium and magnesium content is also found higher value in the manure. All the micronutrients are above sufficiency level in the manure.
  • The soils of farmer’s field having higher pH and is coming under alkali soil with low organic carbon content. The soils is low in Nitrogen and Phosphorus while medium in Potassium. The calcium and magnesium content is found higher value in the farmer’s soil.  The Zn content was found in low level while others micronutrients are in sufficiency level.
  • The soils of bajwada farm is having higher pH with high in organic carbon content. The soils are low in Nitrogen, medium in Phosphorus while rich in Potassium. The calcium and magnesium content is found higher value in the farm soil.  All the micronutrients are above sufficiency level in the manure.

Comments:

The challenge is to enrich our soils with organic carbon and all the nutrients by practising natueco-farming and is possible to increase the food production with no dependency on synthetic fertilizers.  The enriching of carbon in soils of Bajwada has begun and this technique of natueco-farming needs to be popularized in all types of soils of India.
