The analysis of soil samples taken from the areas around the Lanka, Mirzamurad and Babatpur, Varanasi for evaluating its physical properties were carried out in the Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry Laboratory at the Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi during 2015. The bulk density, particle density, water holding capacity%, porosity%, particle distribution% and texture of these soil samples was determined by using standard methods. These soil samples were collected from Vaishnov nagar, Susuwahi, Newada, Gandh, Nasirpur, Agriculture farm, Sankat mochan colony, Naria, Sear govardhan and Karadhi locations of Lanka, Nayapur, Todarpur, Rupapur, Sheorampur, Tribhuvanpur, Bharkala, Dewapur khurd, Ram rathauna, Kasara and Pratappur locations of Mirzamurad and Chherapur, Narayandaspur, Dallipur, Tadi, Fattepur, Kathraon, Rajapur, Nindeva, belwa and khemapur locations of Babatpur, Varanasi. The result showing that bulk density (1.33) was recorded more in Pratappur location of Mirzamurad, particle density (2.60) in Vaishnov nagar location of Lanka, water holding capacity% (63.82) in Todarpur location of Mirzamurad, porosity% (54.49) in Belwa location of Babatpur, under particle distribution sand % (44.56) in Chherapur location of Babatpur, silt % (34 and 34) in Dewapur khurd and Ram rathauna location of Mirzamurad and clay% (35.44) were recorded more than other locations of Lanka, Mirzamurad and Babatpur of Varanasi.

Keywords   Bulk density, particle density, water holding capacity, porosity, sand, silt, clay.
