Abstract:

The study entitled "Studies on physico chemical properties of soil in tree arboretum of UAS GKVK Bengaluru" was carried out in 30-year-old plantation at tree arboretum UAS GKVK Bengaluru with majorly found tree species such as Ceiba pentandra, Artocarpus hirsutus, Grevillea robusta and Sterculia companulata. The results revealed that at different depth (0-15 and 15-30cm) of soil among the different tree species maximum available Nitrogen (287.31kg/ha) (270.95 kg/ha), Potassium (109.3 kg/ha) (96.0 kg/ha) and soil moisture (12.02 %) (12.9 %) was found highest in Ceiba pentandra at depth of 0-15cm and 15-30cm respectively. Artocarpus hirsutus showed higher amount of Phosphorous (40.74 kg/ha) (24.1 kg /ha) content, Electrical conductivity (0.20 ds/m) (0.19 ds/m) and Organic carbon (2.38%) (2.25%) and Sterculia companulata has higher bulk density (1.14 g/cm3) (1.6 g/cm3) at depth of 0-15cm and 15-30cm respectively. Hence Ceiba pentandra and Artocarpus hirsutusare the tree species which improves the soil quality and maintains the soil in an sustainable way.
