Abstract

The DTPA extractable Zn, Cu, Fe and Mn in 14,276 surface soil samples collected from different agroclimatic zones of Madhya Pradesh was studied. Zinc deficiency was maximum in Gird Zone (86.3%) followed by Kymore Plateau and Satpura Hills (68.6), Bundelkhand Zone (65.0%) and Chhattisgarh Plain (63.0%). About 23.7 per cent soils of Satpura plateau, 19.6% of Jhabua Hills, 16.7% of Central Narmada Valley, 7.2% of Vindhy a plateau, 4 9% of Bundelkhand zone, 4.5% of Nimar valley were found to be deficient in Fe. Gird zone showed Mn deficiency to the extent of 12.8 per cent. Available Cu was found sufficient in all the zones of the state. Plant (wheat) analysis showed wide spread deficiency of Zn in the whole state. Nearly 81.5 per cent plant samples of Malwa Plateau were found deficient in zinc followed by Vindhyan Plateau (80.3%) and Gird Zone (64.6%) Other zones indicated Zn deficiency below 60 percent and the minimum being in Satpura Plateau (19.5%). Manganese deficiency in plants was found to the extent of 54.3 per cent in the Gird zone
