Abstract:
The present investigation was conduct to assess the different soil properties of Mawkynrew Block, Meghalaya, India. All together twenty- seven samples were taken from three profile depth i.e. 0-15 cm, 15-30 cm and 30 -45 cm from three different villages for the analysis of Physico-Chemical properties of soil. Result shows that the texture varied from sandy clay loam to clay loam, soil colour shows dark brown to yellowish red in dry condition and from dark brown to dark greyish brown in wet condition., bulk density and particle density increases with an increase with depth, water holding capacity and percent pore space decreases with depth, and the soil are acidic and non – saline in nature. The organic carbon is high in content, low to medium in nitrogen content, medium in phosphorous and potassium content in all villages except for few. Exchangeable calcium and magnesium varies from low to medium. The available sulphur are high in content, Micronutrients are present in higher amount. All the micronutrient shows decreased trend with the soil depth Significant and non-significant difference of soil physico- chemical properties was observing both due to village and due to depth.
