Abstract:
Saharsa, one of Bihar's most flood-prone areas, was chosen as the sampling location. Soil degradation in the district is primarily caused by flooding. The current research was conducted at Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology and Sciences' Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry lab. The goal of this research was to look at various soil physical properties. A total of 27 samples were gathered from various farmer's fields, with composite sampling taking place at three depths of 0-15, 15-30, and 30-45 cm. The texture was sandy loam to sandy clay, with bulk densities ranging from 1.11 to 1.59 Mg/m3, particle densities ranging from 2.22 to 2.85 Mg/m3, pore space ranging from 52.60 to 66.50 percent, and water content ranging from 52.60 to 66.50 percent. Water holding capacity ranged from 61.11 to 78.12%.
