Physico-chemical properties of soils from different land use systems viz. agriculture, olericulture, horticulture etc in Prayagraj (Allahabad) Uttar Pradesh were analyzed in 2018-19. Samples were collected from 4 different sites of Allahabad district viz., ECC gaughat, Jhunsi, Karchhana & Subedarganj having distance between them of at least 4 kms. Some soils samples had higher water holding capacity & value of organic carbon. They have average value of pH and EC as compared to the cultivated
