ABSTRACT 

An experiment was conducted at the farmer’s field at the Sherpur, Bogura during January-December 2017 to evaluate the snutrient status of pre and post post-harvest soil of the sugarcane field. The experiments consisted of eight treatments viz., T0 = Control (no fertilizers and manures), T1 = Control (No fertilizer),T2 = N165P55K120S30Zn2.5Mg20 (as per soil analysis), T3 = T2 + Dolomite (1 t ha–1),T4 = 50% of T2 + Poultry manure (10 t ha–1), T5 = 50% of T2 + Poultry manure (10 t ha–1) + Dolomite (1 t ha–1), T6 = 50% of T2 + Cowdung (12.5 t ha–1), T7 = 50% of T2 + Cowdung (12.5 t ha–1) + Dolomite (1 t ha–1) and T8 = 50% of T2 + Pressmud (15 t ha–1). Results revealed that all the treatments showed were more or less statistically similarities. with each other in respect to pH (5.03-5.22), K (0.171-0.220 me 100 g–1), Mg (1.28-1.58 me 100 g–1) and Zn (0.92 to 1.05 µg g–1) contents of the post-harvest soil. Similar observation was also obtained in available             P content with the ranges of 15.25 ppm (T1) to 17.22 ppm (T5). On the other hand, N, S and Ca content varied significantly from 0.095 to 0.112%, 13.25 to 17.15 µg g–1 and 3.46 to 4.25 me 100 g–1 respectively where the lowest values were recorded in treatment T1 and the highest values were obtained in treatment T5.

Key words: Sugarcane, initial soil, post-harvest soil.
