Results: The farmers realized the importance of soil testing before cultivation of crop in every season. Farmers feel that the soil testing programme which carried out gave good results. Since the results of soil testing are reliable and delivered in time before sowing, farmers are able to follow the recommendations and accordingly apply the fertilizers. The fertility based on soil samples analysed indicates that the soil in whole district is neutral in reaction with medium EC. The majority of soils are low in organic carbon, low to medium in nitrogen and phosphorus and medium to high in potash. The deficiency of sulphur and zinc has also arrived.

Impact: Some of the farmers expressed that due to the availability of soil test results; they could apply only required quantity of balance fertilizers and thereby reduce the cost of cultivation, increased yield and maintaining the soil health. Farmers were convinced with the importance of the soil test. The farmers have been used fertilizers as per the results of soil testing. The supply of fertilizers in the district has been increased up to 41% and consumption of fertilizers has also been increased up to 37%. The last year consumption of fertilizers was 76 Kg/ha which has increased up to 117 Kg/ha, recently. In the recent year (2010), the consumption of bio-fertilizers is 75000 packets of PSB, 45000, packets of Rhizobium and 36000 packets of Azotobacter. The use of bio-gas slurry, NADEP compost, FYM and vermin-compost has increased 81937 ha in the district.
