Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the levels of some physical and chemical soil parameters in Amanisha-nala of Jaipur City during monsoon session (June September 2009) and to access the quality of soil for determining its suitability for agricultural and irrigation purposes. Physicalchemical parameters of soil such as pH, EC, available organic-carbon, phosphate, potash and Micronutrients such as Zn, Fe, Cu and Mn were analyzed. Soil samples from twenty one sites of Amanisha-nala were taken during monsoon session. The analysis of soil samples shows that soil is slightly alkaline in nature regarding to pH which is somewhat not permissible for irrigation and agricultural purposes. Further there is a problem of alkalinity in three soil samples out of twenty one samples, however all the value of EC come in permissible range. The percentage analysis of organic carbon shows low level in the entire soil samples whereas only 8 samples show high level of phosphate and potash shows medium level. The mean concentration of Micronutrients is in order of Fe >Mn> Zn>Cu (in ppm).
