An investigation was carried out to know the variations in algal floristic and major nutrients of Hassan district soils. During the study periodic trips were made for soil samples. The soil samples were collected from all the eight taluks of Hassan district viz., Alur, Arkalgud, Arsikere, Belur, Channarayapatna, Hassan, Holenarasipura and Sakaleshpura. Collected soil samples were subjected for estimation of algal floristic composition and physic-chemical properties. The results revealed that significantly more algal floristic composition observed in Holenarasipura and Sakaleshpuraas compare to other taluks followed by Arakalgudu, Channarayapatna and Alur and least was observed in Arasikere. And with respect to physic chemical properties of soil maximum soil fertility parameters viz., Organic matter content, Nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and other micronutrients were observed in Sakaleshpura and Holenarasipura followed by Arakalgudu, Channarayapatna and least were observed in Arasikere.
