Abstract:

Industrial activities sequel a demolishing influence on the soil health. The present investigation was analysed at Sam Higginbottom University of agriculture technology and sciences in the department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry lab. The objective of this study was to analyse various soil physico-chemical properties. Depth wise soil samples were collected from three selected farmer’s field in Piprola village of Dadrol block of Shahjahanpur district. Three different sites were taken in each farmer’s field represented three profile depths viz., 0-15, 15-30 and 30-45 cm, totally 27 samples were collected. The results revealed that the texture was sandy loam, bulk density ranged from 1 to 1.23 Mg m-3, particle density from 2 to 2.66 Mg m-3, pore space from 42.52 to 55.19(%), water holding capacity from 54.54 to 78.21 (%) and specific gravity from 2.1 to 4.43. The pH ranged from7.17 to 8.84, E.C. from 0.15 to 0.51(dS m-1).Available nitrogen ranged from 142.16 to 424.39 (kg ha-1), phosphorous from 20.67 to 41.42 (kg ha-1) and potassium from 62.88 to 108.23 (kg ha-1). Exchangeable calcium, magnesium ranged from 0.7 to 2.57, 0.2 to 0.82 (cmol (p+) kg-1) and available sulphur from 6.03 to 11.34 (ppm). Overall soils were in moderate condition. Farmers required maintaining soil health card, adopting suitable management practices and providing proper nutrition to the soil to overcome the pollution effect.
