Author: We planned to have two geographically distant locations that are 40km apart, to encompass varying soil profiles of 30, 60, and 90 cm depth to typically represent Anantapur region (District map). Three soil depths (30, 60, 90 cm) were available in Krishnamreddipally, but in another village, Pampanur, only 30 and 60 cm profiles were available. Soil profiles of 90 cm were selected from Akuthotapally village to have same number of replication of soil types. Twenty four farmers volunteered to conduct field demonstrations from these three villages.
