Abstract

An appraisement of Physical properties of soils from different villages of ‘Karnal District’ of Haryana was carried out in 2022-2023. The prime objectives of this study were to carry out the survey, to collect the information of sampling sites and to analyse physical properties of soil and macro-micro nutrient status and its relation to various chemical properties of soil. For assessment purpose, nine sampling sites were selected. Soil samples were collected at various depths of 0-15, 15-30, and 30-45 cm. The result indicated that soil of Kalampura, Dabri and Pundrak villages are sandy loam in texture, has good Water Holding Capacity and Pore Space(%) and optimum Bulk Density and Particle Density and good overall physical condition.

Keywords: Physical properties, analysis; texture, bulk density, particle density
