The soil samples were collected from three blocks of the Buldana district from two depth viz. 0-15 cm and 15-30 cm for the assessment of the chemical properties of soil of Buldana district, Maharashtra was carried out in 2019-20. Eighteen sampling points in different villages were selected for the analysis. The colour of soil changed between the two depths of 0-15 and 15-30 cm at all the locations. There was also difference in colour of dry and wet soils were dark greyish brown to black. The study revealed that range of particle density was from 2.15 to 2.55 Mgm-3, bulk density from 1.09 to 1.19 Mgm-3, water holding capacity from 57.14% to 91.89 %. The sand, silt and clay ranges were from 19-23 %, 32-40 % and 41-48 % respectively. It includes mean highest percent pore space 61.11 and the lowest percent pore space 51.94. The pH ranges from 6.67 to 8.29. The EC ranges from 0.17 to 0.63 dSm-1. The organic carbon ranges from 0.26 to 0.92 %, & organic matter ranges from 0.31 to 1.57 %,nitrogen ranges from 114.24 to 409.52kg ha-1, phosphorus ranges from 12.49 to 28.31kg ha-1, potassium ranges from 120 to 320.2kg ha-1, calcium ranges from 0.32 to 0.42 (mgg-1), magnesium ranges from 7.90 to 10.25 (mgm-1), iron ranges from 1.6 to 5.33 (ppm), zinc ranges from 0.10 to1.54 (ppm) and copper ranges from 0.51 to 1.51 (ppm).

Keywords: Physico-chemical properties of soil, Buldana, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium etc.
