Abstract:
A lab experiment was conducted for an evaluation of soil physical properties of farmer’s field of Jaipur district of Rajasthan. A certain depth wise soil samples were collected from various depth viz. 0-15 cm, 15-30 cm and 30-45cm. The analysis of the soil samples manifested that the soil samples fall under loamy sand to sandy loam. The soil color varied from Dark brown (10 YR 3/3) to yellowish brown (10 YR 5/4). Soil having bulk density range from 1.40 to 1.52 Mg m-3 with the mean value of 1.46 Mg m-3 and particle density range from 2.44 to 2.57 Mg m-3 with the mean value of 2.50 Mg m-3. The pore space ranges from 39.08% to 43.53% with the mean value of 41.30%. The value of sand, silt and clay in the soils varied from 72.20% to 80.20%, 10.20% to 16.50% and 8.30% to 13.60%. The results obtained thus indicate that the study soils mainly fit for cultivation of pearl millet, ground nut, cowpea, wheat, barley, mustard, coriander and fenugreek. On the basis of analysis, it was found that using organics with in – organics to managed present and future deficiencies of nutrients in these soils and also improve soil health for future generation.
