Integrated nutrient management of Gangetic Floodplain Soils of Bangladesh



Integrated nutrient management of Gangetic Floodplain Soils of Bangladesh



Integrated management of Ganges flood plains and Sundarbans ecosystem: Proceedings of the National Seminar, Khulna University, Khulna, Bangladesh, 16-18 July 1994: 173-187



The Gangetic Floodplain Soils of Bangladesh are situated on four agroecological zones: the Active Ganges Floodplain, High Ganges Floodplain, Low Ganges Floodplain and Ganges Tidal Floodplain. Covering ~41 573 kmsuperscript 2, they represent 28.8% of the country's total area. The location and extent, soil genesis, status of various plant nutrients, crop production potentials as well as major limitations related to physical and chemical soil fertility of these lands are briefly discussed.
