Abstract

Physico-chemical properties of soils from different land use systems viz. agriculture, olericulture, horticulture etc in Prayagraj (Allahabad) Uttar Pradesh were analyzed in 2018-19. Samples were collected from 4 different sites of Allahabad district viz., ECC gaughat, Jhunsi, Karchhana & Subedarganj having distance between them of at least 4 kms. Some soils samples had higher water holding capacity & value of organic carbon. They have average value of pH and EC as compared to the cultivated soils. Potassium was found to be of low content in soil samples. Physical properties and parameters for all soils were average or medium whereas as variation in chemical properties were observed.

Keywords:
Physical properties, chemical properties, Allahabad district, soil, physico-chemical, prayagraj.
