Physico-Chemical and Microbiological Studies of Soil Samples in Alathur Block, Prembalur District, Tamilnadu


The current study has been undertaken to investigate the Physico-chemical properties of the soil samples of agricultural region collected from Alathur Block Prembalur and were analyzed. The soil characterization was carried out for the parameters viz soil pH, turbidity ,total dissolved solid, total hardness, total alkalinity, calcium, magnesium, nitrate, sulphate, chloride, fluoride, phosphate, iron, biological oxygen demand and chemical oxygen demand concentration. Microbiological characteristics of the soil samples were carried out Escherichia and staphylococcus auras species were the predominant bacteria generally isolated.
