Abstract:
The objective of this study is to do the physical and chemical 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 Guntur District with three depths viz., 0-15, 15-30 and 30-45 cm. Soil parameters like soil texture, soil colour, Bulk density, particle density and solid space increases with increase in depth, pore space decreases as go deeper, water holding capacity and specific gravity were increases with increasing depths. The soil of the study area varies from dark brown to dark yellowish 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 and the soil is alkaline in nature. The organic carbon is low in content, low to medium in nitrogen content, high in phosphorous, potassium, Exchangeable calcium and magnesium and available sulphur contents.
