CHARACTERIZATION OF SOIL QUALITY PARAMETERS UNDER PLAIN AND HILLY REGION OF EAST SIANG DISTRICT, ARUNACHAL PRADESHTuli Taga, Ramawatar Meena, Varadaraju Viveka and Kamini Kumari
The investigation conducted at the laboratory of Rajiv Gandhi South Campus, Banaras Hindu University, Barkachha; Mirzapur during the year 2021. The objective of this study was to characterize the physicochemical properties under plain and hilly areas soil of East Siang District, Arunachal Pradesh. By using GPS camera, 30 soil samples under plain area and 30 soil samples under hilly area was collected. The physical and chemical properties of soil were critically analyzed. According to the soil nutrient index of the study area, the soils of east siang district found out to be low in the available Nitrogen content, Potassium, and sulphur content of soil and medium in organic carbon and phosphorus content of the soil of both plain and hilly region. The plain area soils were found acidic to neutral in reaction and free from salinity. The pH of hilly area soil was found acidic in reaction and free from salinity.
