Abstract: Today, due to the constraint in availability of the freshwater for irrigation, waste water especially sewage water is being used for irrigation of agriculture fields. Experiment was conducted form crop cultivation field by using sewage water. These fields were irrigated with sewage waste water. Use of the domestic waste water with fertilizers has shown the improvement in the physico-chemical properties of the soil. The domestic wastewater irrigation applied for a season had no significant effects apart from, slight changes in salt solubility and alkalinity on soil with sewage wastewater irrigation. The sewage waste water irrigated field soil was analyzed to study the soil physico-chemical properties. Soil samples were collected from four different locations in Bhilwara region and various parameters were analyzed viz., pH, EC, BD, PD, WHC, OC, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Sulphur. The samples were found to contain mean of pH 7.49, EC 0.84 dSm-1, OC 0.79 %, N 231.13 kg ha-1, P 15.12 kg ha-1, K 439.18 kg ha-1, S 16.47(Cmol (P+) Kg-1), Mg 9.13 (Cmol (P+) Kg-1) and Ca 2.43 (Cmol (P+) Kg-1) respectively.
