Kihika G, Yabi Gadi, Sentimenla, AK Singh, SK Sharma

For the proposed study, soil samples were collected from 15 villages under jhum and terrace rice field under Sitimi block of Kiphire district. The soil pH of different villages under Kiphire district ranged from 5.03- 6.08 indicating moderate to slightly acidic condition. The values of OC were found to be very high too high in both Jhum and Terrace where it ranged from 0.96-5.86%. CEC of the soils varied from 28.99-2.80 c mol (p+) kg-1. Bulk density and Particle density of the soils varied from 0.80-1.37g cm-3 and 2.23-2.66 g cm-3 respectively. The soil available N, P and K ranged from 150.53-602.11 kg ha-1, 4.10-28.21 kg ha-1 and 121.50-218.27 kg ha-1 respectively.
