Distribution of available micronutrient status in banana growing tracts of Thoothukudi District of Tamilnadu
A study was conducted to access the micronutrient status of Zn, Cu, and Mn in banana growing tracts of Thoothukudi district of Tamilnadu. A total of 238 surface soil samples were collected from farmer’s field and analyzed for DTPA-extractable micronutrient status and soil properties. Content of micronutrient was in order of Fe> Mn > Cu> Zn. The DTPA- Zn, Cu, Fe and Mn in soils varied from 0.22 to 2.89, 0.32 to 5.73, 3.00 to 71.18 and 2.87 to 33.56 mg kg-1.
