Abstract: Soil is a natural body of mineral and organic material differentiated into horizons, which differ among themselves as well as from underlying materials in their morphology, physical make-up, chemical composition and biological characteristics. In Bhopal city due to industrialization and other anthropogenic activity the soil has been polluted and hence it is felt necessary to carry out the soil analysis to understand the pollution levels of the soils in the adjoining area. Since plants depend on the soils for their nutrients, water and minerals supply, the soil type is a major factor in determining what types of plants will grow in a any area. In the present study the analyses of soil samples collected from the various stations located in city which is influenced by the solid waste disposal as well as industrial effluents. In the first place soils samples from 10 representative locations were collected for their analysis. Physical parameters like pH, Electrical conductivity (EC), organic carbon (%) and chemical parameters like phosphorus, copper, iron, manganese, zinc and boron were anlyzed.
