Abstract: The soil sample from various localities of Western Ghat of Maharashtra, (Igatpuri) was undertaken. The experiment was conducted on silt clay loam soil in Igatpuri (Nashik district, Maharashtra, India) to determine the effect of organic matter of soil on its electrical parameters. The soil characterization was carried out with respect to particle size, bulk density, water holding capacity, hydraulic conductivity, soil pH N, P, K, Iron, Manganese , Zinc, Copper, Electrical conductivity, free calcium carbonate and organic carbon. An automated X-band microwave set-up in the TE10 mode with Reflex Klystron source operating at frequency 9 GHz is used for measuring dielectric constants. These properties are important in better understanding of soil physics, agricultural application and analyzing the satellite data in remote sensing. A study of soil profile supplemented by physical and chemical properties of the soil will give full picture of soil fertility and productivity. Every soil has its natural fertility, which differs from soil-to-soil. In the world, cropping pattern is not same; it changes from one place to another place with response to types of their soil and its characteristics. It is observed that continuous rice-based cropping systems are implicated for increased bulk density of soil, irrespective of soil types.
Keywords: Dielectric constant, tangent loss, microwave conductivity, relaxation time, moisture content
