Abstract:
A study was conducted to analyse the physical properties of soil of East Khasi Hills District, Meghalaya. The objective of this study is to do the physical analysis of soil samples and to provide information to the farmers due to lack of information in the selected areas. Soil samples were collected from three blocks of East Khasi Hills District with three depths viz., 0-15, 15-30 and 30-45 cm. Soil parameters like soil texture, soil colour, Bulk density (1.09 Mg m-3), particle density (2.31 Mg m-3), pore space (61.48%), water holding capacity (67.20%) and specific gravity were analyzed. The soil of the study area varies from brown to dark reddish brown in colour and its texture varies from loam to clay loam. The result of the study area shows that the soil has a very good physical condition.
