Abstract

Nutrient sorption studies were conducted in two benchmark soils belonging to Kalathur and Irugur series by two methods, viz., Agro Services International (ASI) and conventional methods in order to quantitatively assess the variations in their nutrient extracting ability. The results indicated that the two methods differed very much in their nutrient extracting ability among soils of different characteristics and exhibited specificity with some nutrients. Thus, enough caution must be exercised while using such data of nutrient sorption studies in defining fertilizer optima in any fertilization programme for different soil types
