Soil nutrients and their Interrelationships


Could a soil test demonstrate a supplement, for example, Phosphorus or Potassium inadequate sums in the soil, yet when a plant investigation is taken, there is a lack of this same supplement in the plant? Indeed, this circumstance can and happens. For instance, when a dry spell happens, the plant can't take up adequate soil supplements, yet a soil test demonstrates that the supplement at an adequate level in the soil. This is the reason we have to consider "water administration" as a component of an effective soil fruitfulness program. 

Notwithstanding, there are different components which we have control over that can cause this same issue. For instance, not keeping up appropriate pH can stop or diminish take-up of supplements. Much of the time, high pH (7.0 or higher), lessens plant take-up of numerous supplements, and a low pH (5.0 or lower) can do in like manner. The exemption would be particular products supporting either a high pH or a low pH condition. Understand that limestone (Calcium (Ca) and Magnesium (Mg)) play a "noteworthy" part in the accessibility of supplements. 

Supplements don't act alone. All supplements collaborate with no less than one other supplement, yet all supplements are tried as though they remain solitary. 

The case of Phosphorus (P): Zinc (Zn) relationship is clarified. All together for the plant to have the capacity to take up adequate Phosphorus (P), there must be accessible an adequate measure of Zinc (ZN) in the soil. At the point when the plant can't discover adequate Zinc (ZN), it will quit taking up Phosphorus (P). More than 60 supplement connections are talked about in agronomy writing. 

At long last, we realize that the soil particles are adversely charged colloids, while supplements including Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), Sodium (Na), Potassium (K), and Hydrogen (H) are all cations or decidedly charged components. Of these cations, we realize that Calcium (Ca) is the most grounded held cation. Magnesium (Mg) is a nearby second, Sodium (Na) and Potassium (K) are fundamentally equivalent as the third most grounded and Hydrogen (H) is the weakest or most inexactly held cation. pH is an estimation of the measure of Hydrogen (H) particles in the soil. 

At the point when limestone is included (Calcium (Ca) and Magnesium (Mg) the two most grounded held cations), it greatly affects the availability of Potassium (K), a significantly weaker supplement. This relationship of supplements is imperative in the Total Soil Management examination of soil tests and making proposals.

Why pests attack your crops and How to stop it?

Disease pathogens and pests are always present. Yet not all plants come down with diseases or are attacked by pests. This tells us that diseases and pests are not unavoidable and that insects and plant pathogens are not the real cause of the problem.
Pests and diseases are nature’s garbage collectors !!!
Pests and diseases are merely there to eat or infect an unhealthy plant which is weakened. It is easy to see this as a nuisance but from our perspective, they perform an important ecological role. These unhealthy or defective plants would not be optimal for consumption of humans or animals and therefore these pests and diseases are doing us a favour by preventing us from eating inferior produce. However modern agriculture and horticulture have meant we can now simply kill off the pests and diseases using chemicals and eat the inferior produce anyway.
Insect pests and diseases cannot successfully attack healthy, vigorously growing plants because, like humans and animals, healthy plants ca…

5 Effective ways to Enrich soil

1. Compost
Turn your kitchen waste, leaves, grass clippings, and so forth into a fabulous soil change with almost no effort. Manure includes the two supplements and natural issue to the soil, and it additionally assists with water maintenance. You can buy it or, make your own.

Giving worms something to do is another regular way you can enhance plant soil. There are a couple of various approaches to get this going:
Add them to your manure heap to help speed deterioration and add considerably more supplements to your fertilizer.
Develop/cultivate worms in a different fertilizer container and spare their worm castings. Add worms specifically to your poor soil. Give them some manure and mulch, and the worms will help circulate air through your soil and put their castings straightforwardly into the troublesome territory. Its termed as vermicompost.

2. Manure(FYM)
It is called as 'dark gold'. It's an excellent, wonder…

Five Layer Shri Palekar Ji Model - 36*36 model for full 1 acre

Huge trees, for example, Mango, Jack-fruit, Jamun, and Amla ought to be planted 36 feet separated.
Guava, Chikku, Lemon and Pomegranate saplings can be planted in the middle of the mango plants at a separation of 18 feet.
Papaya, Drum-stick, Banana that involve lesser space ought to be planted in a space of 9 feet between the second arrangement of trees recorded previously. The above plants ought to be planted along a similar column over the plot of land leaving space to develop a single assortment of vegetables, millets and so forth on each bed.
separate 1 section of land into a break even with squares of 36ft X 36ft. In each piece of 36 ft x 36 ft ( which is additionally separated into four 9ft X 9ft sub-squares) We can grow around 170 trees, in that 9ft x 9 ft part of the land (one sub-square). Plant 1 Banana Tree, 4 Arecanut Trees, 4 Black pepper Creepers getting on Arecanut trees, 2 Coffee Plants, 2 Glirsedia Trees, 2 Venella Creepers hopping on Glirsedia trees and 32 Ginger Plants …
