Abstract:
The current study, entitled "Vertical distribution of soil properties and diversity in permanent bench mark sites of the Northern Hill Zone of C.G.," was conducted in the year 2020-21 to assess the depth-wise distribution of physical properties of soils in different Permanent Benchmark Sites (PBMS). Analysis of soil pH, Electrical conductivity, Cation exchange capacity and Organic carbon revealed that all the chemical properties were increased with increasing soil depths in each series. The data on pH and EC followed the increasing trends with a decrease in depth along the series. The pH of soils in various series of Inceptisols ranged from slightly acidic to slightly alkaline, with the exception of the Jordo, Mahuli, and Kedali series, which ranged from slightly acidic to neutral. The pH of the series of Alfisols and Entisols ranged from moderately acidic to neutral. Whereas the value of EC has a normal range. The organic carbon content of the soil was higher at the surface than at deeper layers. The highest CEC value (25.6 Cmolc kg-1) was found in the Jordol series of Inceptisols and Alfisols. The lower CEC value of 9.3 Cmolc kg-1 was recorded in the Jordol.
