In present study Physical and Chemical properties of soils and their
relationship with electrical conductivity were studied. The soil samples were
collected at a depth 20 cm from five different locations of ChalisgaonTehasil region.
The soil samples were analyzed for pH, Electrical conductivity, organic carbon,
Calcium Carbonate, Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium, Iron, Manganese, Zinc,
Copper, Calcium, Magnesium, Bulk density and texture. Electrical Conductivity had
high degree positive correlation with silt content and negative significant correlation
with sand content. Bulk density showed positive significant correlation with sand
content and negative significant correlation with clay content of soil. Sand content of
soil had higher effect on Electrical Conductivity (EC) and Bulk Density of soils.
Electrical conductivity had positive significant correlation with organic carbon,
Phosphorous, Potassium, Manganese and Copper.
