A Study of Physico-Chemical Properties of Soil of Vegetable Farms Near Nayawas and Mandrella By Pass at Jhunjhunu City(Raj.)Author(s): Sushma Jain and Avdhesh Singh
Sewage water is used for irrigation in vegetable farms near Nayawas and Mandrella by–pass. This water affects the physico-chemical properties of soil and deteriorate the soil fertility. Therefore, 13 soil samples were collected from the vegetable farms. The various physico-chemical parameters such as EC, TDS, SAR, alkalinity, sodium and potassium were determined. The results show that these parameters are beyond the limits of Indian standards. Therefore, the study of parameters are important for the utilization and proper management of soils in agronomy.
