Abstract: An experiment was conducted on acid soils of Ranchi, India, to evaluate the effect of crop residues maize (Zea mays), wheat (Triticum aestivum), rice (Oryza sativa) and soybean (Glycin max) as a liming material in acid soil. In the present investigation four crop residues were arranged in completely randomized design (CRD). The results of study indicated that incorporation of crop residues was significantly increase soil reaction (soil pH) during all incubation days than the control treatments. The addition of maize, rice, wheat and soybean crop residues significantly (P<0.05) increased phosphorous (P) availability and soil reaction (pH) compared with the initial value. Results revealed that overall, mean of available P during all incubation days was highest in addition of maize residue (26.23 kg ha-1) followed by soybean residue (25.52 kg ha-1) as compared than other treatments. The increasing trend of P mineralization was showed in initial incubation period (7 to 30 days of incubation). Results revealed that incorporation of maize and soybeanresidues in acid soils positively increase availability of P compared with other treatments along with control in acid soils.
