Abstract

With the ever increasing demand for increasing the productivity per unit area and the narrowing cost benefit ratio has made the farmer more sensitive to the soil fertility status and soil health. Focus on the existing soil testing methods used to test the soil all over the India. This paper is an integrated approach of formulating a complete and a balanced fertilizer recommendation was tested in the field with tomato as the crop. This soil test kit is enabling the farmer himself to do the analysis in field and apply fertilizers as per soil test value. This soil test kit has been formulated and fabricated in such a simple mode so that an illiterate farmer can also test his soil of his field.
