Abstract: The phosphorus extracted by four different chemical extractants from 34 samples of paddy soils was studied in relation to the phosphorus uptake by plants as well as eight of the important chemical characteristics of the soils that subtly control the fixation and availability of phosphorus in them. The soil chemical characteristics were also studied in relation to the uptake of phosphorus by plants . Since rice soils are generally waterlogged during the cropping period, its effect on readily extractable phosphorus was also studied in experiments under simulated conditions in the laboratory. Besides, on four typical soils graded doses of phosphorus was applied, rice plants grown and the yield response studied.
