Abstract:

An estimation of physical properties of soil of block Raisinghnagar and Sri Vijayanagar of Sri Ganganagar district was carried out in 2016-17. The main objectives of this study was to carried out the survey, collection of information and analysis of physical properties of soil, for the analysis 8 sampling points were selected. Soil samples were collected at a depth of 0-15cm and 15-30 cm and 30-45cm and the study revealed that particle density ranges from 2.40 to 2.66 gcm-3, bulk density ranges from 1.08 to 1.23 gcm-3, water retaining capacity ranges from 43.40 to 60.50%, and specific gravity ranges from 1.74 to 2.39. A soil texture is classified from sandy soil to sandy loam soil. It clearly indicated that soil has good water holding capacity and has good physical condition. Soil is suitable for almost all tropical and sub-tropical crops and oil seeds.
