Abstract: The present work has been comprise of 30 soil tested farmers/beneficiaries and 30 control farmers of 2 villages, 2 blocks and 2 districts (Sehore and Jabalpur) of Madhya Pradesh. The present infrastructure of soil testing facility is found to be insufficient in different districts of Madhya Pradesh. There is an urgent need to increase quantity as quality of soil sample testing. It will be appreciable if each lab may adopt at least one nearby village from where sample may be collected by the laboratory staff and recommendations are also communicated over directly by the laboratory staff to the farmers and to follow the outcome of the SHC scheme. Presently, the labs are literally cut off from the field and work in isolation of the whole SHC scheme. There is an urgent need to make the SHC available to the farmers in their finger tips with the help of information technology through internet and mobile.
