    Acid Soil Management Through Sweet Potato Cultivation With Nutrient Management

    It is estimated that in Jharkhand about 37.9 lakh ha of land have soil PH 5.5 which comprise of about 49% of the total geographical area (TGA) of the state. Where as in Bokaro district about 2 lakh ha lands are strongly acidic PH 5.5 which is about 69.5% of TGA of the district. Soil acidity is limiting factor for crop production particularly for legumes, oilseeds maize, wheat, vegetables and fruits. The problem of acidity is likely to increase due to erosion of surface soil and use of excessive nitrogenous fertilizer by farmers. These soils produce 30 to 50% of their potential capacity. Through proper soil management soil productivity can be improved considerably and yield can be doubled. But liming has not become a common practice with farmers due to non-availability of liming material in local markets.
