<ul><li><p>SOIL TESTING LABORATORY Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry </p><p>Birsa Agricultural University, Ranchi-834006 </p><p>1.0: Profile </p><p>The prestigious department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry came into being </p><p>in 1955 as an integral part and founder department of Ranchi Agriculture College, under Ranchi </p><p>University. Later this College came under the administrative control of Rajendra Agricultural </p><p>University, Pusa, Samastipur, Bihar from 3rd</p><p> December, 1970. In June, 1981 Birsa Agricultural </p><p>University came into existence </p><p>Soil testing service in India began in 1955-56 with the soil testing laboratory at IARI as the hub </p><p>to coordinate with all the other soil testing laboratories in the country. This laboratory act as </p><p>Nodal Soil Testing Laboratory for Soil and Plant Analysis is well known among research and </p><p>extension agencies, and farmers for its advanced facilities, reliability of analysis, and an efficient </p><p>advisory service. </p><p>2.0: Why soil testing is done? </p><p>A To estimate available nutrients in soil. </p><p>B To evaluate fertility status of soil. </p><p>C To recommendation exact amount of fertilizers for crop. </p><p>D To determine soil problems (acidity, alkalinity). </p><p>E To check soil pollution status. </p><p>F To prepare soil fertility maps. </p><p>3.0: Objectives of Soil Testing </p><p> To estimate the physical properties and available nutrient status (macro, secondary and </p><p>micro-nutrients) of soils. </p><p> To provide soil test based recommendations to farmers for improving soil fertility and </p><p>economic return to farmers. </p><p> To facilitate and promote use of soil amendments for reclamation of acidic/alkaline soils </p><p>for improving their fertility and crop productivity. </p></li><li><p> To facilitate and promote Integrated Nutrient Management (INM) through judicious use </p><p>of chemical fertilizers, including secondary and micro nutrients along with organic </p><p>manures and bio-fertilizers, for improving soil health and its productivity. </p><p> To promote use of micro nutrients for improving crop productivity. </p><p> To upgrade the skill and knowledge of STL/Extension staff and farmers and their </p><p>capacity building through training and demonstration including demonstration on farmers </p><p>fields regarding benefits of balanced use of fertilizers. </p><p> Creation of data bank for balanced use of fertilizers, which is site specific. </p><p> Preparation of digital district soil maps (using Global Positioning System) and soil </p><p>fertility monitoring system. </p><p>4.0: Facilities available </p><p>The laboratory has the capacity of testing around 10,000 samples in a year. The target for testing </p><p>of NPK only is 80% of the total sample and for micronutrients it will be 20 % of the total </p><p>sample. </p><p>The Laboratory has advanced analytical facilities including ICP-MS , Atomic Absorption </p><p>Spectrophotometer (AAS), Spectrophotometer, Flame Photometer, N-Analyzer etc. The </p><p>Laboratory offers soil, plant, and irrigation water analysis services to the farmers and other </p><p>clients. A regular Advanced Level Training on different aspects of Soil Plant Analysis and </p><p>Water Quality Assessment is going on for the scientific and technical personnel associated with </p><p>soil testing. </p><p>5.0: Elements to be Analyzed </p><p>While carrying out the complete analysis of soil, following categories of elements are normally </p><p>determined: </p><p>1. N, P, K (Major nutrients) </p><p>2. Ca, Mg, S (Secondary nutrients) </p><p>3. Zn, Fe, Cu, Mn and B(Micro nutrients) </p><p>4. Heavy metals like Pb and Ni </p><p>Besides these nutrients soil are also analyzed for following properties. </p><p>1. pH </p><p>2. Electrical Conductivity </p><p>3. Organic carbon </p><p>6.0: Services offered : </p><p> Soil and plant testing for macro and micronutrients. </p><p> Irrigation water quality assessment. </p><p> Manure analysis for total nutrient content for research purpose only. </p><p> Soil and plant analysis for heavy metals and pollutant elements. </p><p> Advisory on balanced fertilizer use. </p></li><li><p> Advisory on management of problem soils. </p><p>7.0: Soil Testing Charge : 1. N, P, K (Major nutrients) @ Rs 100 per parameter per sample </p><p>2. Ca, Mg, S (Secondary nutrients) @ Rs 200 per parameter per sample </p><p>3. Zn, Fe, Cu, Mn and B(Micro nutrients) @ Rs 200 per parameter per sample </p><p>4. Heavy metals like Pb, Ni etc. @ Rs 200 per parameter per sample </p><p>Besides these nutrients soil are also analyzed for following properties </p><p>1. pH @ Rs 100 per sample </p><p>2. Electrical Conductivity @ Rs 100 per sample </p><p>3. Organic carbon @ Rs 100 per sample </p><p>Note : Soil Sample received from Farmers will be tested FREE OF COST </p><p>8.0: Equipments available The equipments available in the laboratory are mentioned below: </p><p>1. Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) </p><p>2. Spectrophotometer </p><p>3. Flame Photometer </p><p>4. Conductivity Meter </p><p>5. pH Meter </p><p>6. Shaking Apparatus </p><p>7.
