Abstract: 27 Soil samples were collected at a depth of 0-15, 15-30 and 30-45 cm from 9 Village in Pandariya Block in Kabirdham District, Chhattisgarh India was carried out in year 2016-17. Soil samples were analysed for Soil colour soil texture, Bulk density Particle density Pore space solid space water retaining capacity. The Soil colour found in dry condition was, dark brown (10YR, 3/3), Brown (10YR, 4/3), Dark yellowish brown (10YR, 4/4) and Yellowish brown (10YR, 5/4). Soil colour found in wet condition was, very dark greyish brown (10YR, 3/2) and dark brown (10YR, 3/3). The sand, silt and clay percentage was varied from 57.34 to 65.25%, 8.43 to 17.38%, and 20.31 to 34.20% respectively. The two textural classes identified were sandy clay loam and sandy clay. The bulk density, particle density, pore space (%), solid space (%) and water retaining capacity found in varied from 1.11 to 1.33 Mg m-3, 1.81 to 2.85 Mg m-3, 31.25 to 58.83%, 41.17 to 68.75% and 52.33 to 70.55% respectively.
