    ), considering the age of tea plantation during the period from 2006 to 2010. The soil samples of Hills, Dooars and Terai region of West Bengal were collected on the basis of age (young, medium and old) of the tea plantsplantsSubject Category: Organism Names

    , although Darjeeling region as organic and non-organic tea growing soils. The soils of the Dooars region were clay to sandy loam in texture whereas; soils of Terai and Darjeeling was sandy loam in texture. The selected TG soils were strong to moderately acidic in reaction with low electrical conductivityelectrical conductivitySubject Category: Properties

    of different regions was found medium to high, but very little variation was obtained with organic tea growing regions of Darjeeling. The soil available P content were low to medium in all the regions but higher available K content were found with the soils of Hills, Dooars and Terai regions. The correlation study indicated that available N and K were influenced by soil organic carbon content, while the available P content by the soil pHsoil phSubject Category: Properties

    . The available N, K and EC were negatively influenced by sand content of the soils.
