Abstract:

The present study was conducted to assess physical properties of soil in block Rajsamand district of Rajasthan using standard laboratory procedures. Soil samples were collected from three blocks (Rajsamand, Nathdwara, Relmagra) of the Rajsamand district from two depths viz. 0-15 cm and 15-30 cm. Results of the study indicated that particle density ranged from 1.90 to 2.90 Mg m-3, bulk density from 1.09-1.30 Mg m-3, percent pore space from 33.00 to 60.00 %, water retaining capacity from 54.27 to 69.51 % and specific gravity from 1.35 to 2.34. The sand, silt and clay ranged from 43.1 to 74.9%, 5.2 to 32.3% and 12.7 to 30.5 % respectively.
