Abstract:
The lab experiment was conducted for an evaluation of soil physical properties of farmer’s field of Mahendergarh district of Haryana. 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 sandy loam soil texture. The soil color (Dry condition) varied from Dark brown (10 YR 3/3), yellow (2.5 Y 7/6), Olive yellow (2.5 Y, 6/8), Greyish brown (2.5 Y, 5/2) and in (wet condition) very dark grayish brown (10YR, 3/2), dark brown (10TR, 3/3). Soil having bulk density range from 1.01 to 1.36 Mg m-3,particle density range from 1.02 to 2.45 Mg m-3.The pore space ranges from 32.35% to 51.90%. Solid space varied from 30.26 to 5507%. The value of sand, silt and clay in the soils varied from 70% to 80.80%, 14.30% to 20% and 10 to 2.5%.Water retaining capacity varied from 7.04 to 9.22Mg m-3 specific gravity varied from 1.57 to 2.38 Mg m-3.The results obtained thus indicate that the study soils mainly fit for cultivation of pearl millet, 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.
