DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

On-going project:

  • Title of the Project: “IDENTIFICATION OF DOMINANT SOIL SEREIS IN PUNJAB, CAPACITY BUILDING THROUGH SOIL SURVEYS AND THEIR MINERALOGICAL COMPONENTS”.
  • Duration                                                                                     36 Months
  • Total Cost                                                                                   114.929 Million
  • Allocation in 2019-20                                                                  70.00 Million

Physical Activities / Targets                     

  • Identification of dominant soil series:                                          150 Sites
  • Report writing and map preparation:                                             01 No.
  • Analysis of soil samples:                                                            3000 Samples
  • Training/Internship/capacity building:                                            75 Trainees

Expected Outcome

  • To quantify potassium status of dominant soil series in Punjab.
  • To study potassium fixation and release in selected soil series.
  • To study the response of potassium application on major crops.
  • To recommend precise fertilizer application based on soil mineralogy and K dynamics to improve the crop yield and cost effective use of K fertilizer.
