Abstract

An experiment was conducted to study the effect of seasons during summer and winter months of the year on certain micronutrients cation contents in soils of three districts of Assam. The concentrations of soli copper, iron, zinc and manganese varied significantly (P<0.01) among districts. Except Iron, the concentrations of soli copper, zinc and manganese in all the three districts were significantly (P0.01) higher during the summer season compared to the winter season
