Abstract:

Mapping of soil properties is an important operation as it plays an important role in the knowledge about soil properties and how it can be used sustainably. The study was carried out in a Bastar district, Chhattisgarh state, India in order to map out some soil characteristics and assess their variability within the area. Samples were collected from the 4 sampling sites, Kesloor and Raikot (NH-16), Adawal and Nagarnar (NH-43) in Jagdalpur. From each site, 6 samples of soils (with three replications) from 20m, 60m and 500m (control site) distance from the edge of national highway at two soil depths, 0-20 cm, and 20-40 cm were collected respectively. The soil samples were air-dried, crushed and passed through a 2 mm sieve before analyzing it for pH, EC, Organic carbon, Iron, Copper and Lead were calculated. After the normalization of data classical statistics was used to describe the soil properties and geo-statistical analysis was used to illustrate the spatial variability of the soil properties by using kriging interpolation techniques in a GIS environment. Results showed that the coefficient of variance for all the variables was 2.33 to 2.42 at depth 0-20cm and 2.34 to 2.41 at depth 20-40 cm. The geostatistical analysis was done by Ordinary kriging.
