Abstract

Gandhinagar is the capital city of Gujarat State. The paper deals with the estimation of micronutrients and physico-chemical characteristics of soil of different talukas of Gandhinagar district. This district has four talukas with 290 villages and 10 urban habitations in the district. For the study purpose, the entire district was divided into 20 sites. Five sites of each talukas were selected. Total 20 sampling sites were selected to collect samples. The study was carried for a period of 2 years (2011 to 2013). Soil samples were colleted and analysed for their physico-chemical parameters like pH, EC, Alkalinity, Chloride, Hardness, Sodium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Nitrate etc. and micronutrients (Cu, Zn, Mn, Fe). Cu was recorded highest in Gandhinagar district. Zn was recorded medium to high in Dehgam, Mansa and Kalol taluka. Zn was recorded high in this district. Mn value was recorded low to medium. Fe was recorded medium.
