Abstract:
An investigation was carried out for characterization of soils of Bairia block of Ballia district, (UP) India. Depth wise soil samples were collected from two pedons selected in two villages. For this purpose, a soil profile was opened in each village. Soil samples were collected from various soil depth viz. 0-15, 15-30, 30-45, 45-60, 60-75, 75-90, 90-105, 105-120, 120-135 and 135-160 cm. Standard analytical methods and procedures were followed for analysis of physico-chemical parameters of soils. Results revealed that pH of soil found to be neutral to slightly alkaline whereas EC was recorded in normal range. Organic carbon content in soil varied from 1.62 to 0.12%. The soil of study area was slightly to moderately calcareous in nature with 1.85 to 3.12% calcium carbonate. Available nitrogen, phosphorus, potash and sulphur content in soil varied from 360.60 to15.70 kg ha-1, 14.50 to 5.30 kg ha-1, 393.40 to 212.80 kg ha-1 and 12.00 to 5.80 kg ha-1, respectively. The texture of soil was found to be loamy sand to silty loam.
