Assessment of Physicochemical Properties of Rhizosphere Soil Samples from Basmati and Non-basmati Rice Growing Areas of Jammu Region, Jammu and Kashmir, India
Journal of Experimental Agriculture International,
In the current study, rhizosphere soil samples were collected from six different locations of rice fields in Jammu, Kathua and Samba districts of Jammu region of UT of Jammu and Kashmir, The soil samples were processed and analysed from their physicochemical characteristics. Soil samples were collected from each sampling site and analysed for Organic Carbon (OC), soil pH, Salinity, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium, along with this the micronutrient profiling of the samples was also conducted following the standard protocols. The overall mean results for soil pH level, OC, N,P, and K content of the majority of rice fields in the research locations were favourable for rice production; nevertheless, the ideal pH and NPK levels should be evaluated on a regular basis to ensure the best potential rice harvests.
