Abstract:

An assessment of physical properties of soil of “Jiribam district” an area of Manipur, India was carried out in 2019-20. The prime objective of this study was collection of information from sampling sites and analysis of physical properties of soil, to make more aware to the farmers. For assessment 9 sampling sites were selected. Soil sample were collected with respect to depth 0-15cm and 15-30cm. The study revealed that mean particle density ranges from 2.355 to 3.4g/cc, mean bulk density from 1.05 to 1.14g/cc, mean pore space range from 70.13% to 56.87% and mean solid space in between 43.42% to 29.83%. The mean water holding capacity range from 80.15% to 66.15% and the mean specific gravity of soil is range from 2.265 to 1.57. Soil texture classes were silty clay to silty loam soil. The soil color found in this region is varied from place to place. Light gray, light yellow brown, olive brown and grayish brown are the most prominent color of these selected sites. It clearly indicated that soil is rich in organic matter and ferrous oxide. A very good water holding capacity of soil and has good physical condition observed.
