Abstract

The present study was conducted on assessing soil physico chemical status of Sahastradhara limestone mine area, Doon valley, Shivalik Himalayas at different soil depth (0-15 and 15-30 cm) of four different sites. The analyzed indicate the soil Ph was acidic in all sites. There was an urgent need for rehabilitating of the degraded land and to restore the ecosystem. The results indicate that each range shows a close affiliation to variable soil properties.

KEYWORDS: Electrical Conductivity (E.C), pH, Soil Organic Carbon (SOC).
