The study evaluated the morphology and physico- chemical, and characteristics as well as the nutrient status of two degraded lowland soils located in Yamuna river bank of Mahewa village area of Prayagraj. Profile depth of 1m, with 20cm interval for 5 different samples are examined for their morphology, physical and chemical properties. Total numbers of 5 samples were collected from different depth at 20cm interval through a profile. All field laboratory analyses were done following standard procedures. Results indicate that, the nutrient status of the lowland soils in the area were moderate. The nutrient status recorded a pH of 7.53,with 0.4dSm-1 electrical conductivity, the available nitrogen were moderate with174.82 kgha-1, organic carbon is high with 1.9%, the organic matter was also found to be high with 3%. The soil shows no carbonate threat with a record of 0.55%. The physical properties of the soil show a bulk density of 1.32Mgm-1 , and the porosity was 54.2%, with a textural class of sandy clay loam of 72.4% sand, 25.2% clay, 2.4% silt, and a blocky to sub angular block structure, the morphology of the soil show a light brown to dark brownish color and the horizon boundaries show smooth to clearly smooth distinction, with a slightly abrupt distinction the soil show a consistency with friable at the surface, moderate to hard at the subsurface horizons.

Keywords: Soil morphology, Physical properties, Chemical properties, Soil profile, Soil horizons
