The study was conducted to evaluate soil quality and impact of industries on different properties of soils of agricultural field, located in the vicinity of industries and those away from industries at district Rohtak, Haryana. The study was carried out by determining some properties of soil and its nutrient status. The sites selected for sampling were five near the industry and other five away from industries. pH of soil near industries were found 7.9 to 8.4 and of soil that is away from industries were found 7.53 to 8.00 and organic carbon content in soils near industry and away from industries varies from 0.49 to 0.62% and 0.02 to 0.39% respectively. Nutrient content, that is, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur content, in the soils near industry were found higher than the soils that are away from industries. The findings revealed that nutrient (N, P, K) content were found higher in soil near industries. The finding of soil properties and nutrient status revealed that the soils away from industries were more near to neutrality and the soil near industries were almost alkali. The nutrient status of soil near industries is higher than that is away from them.
