Abstract: Soils are one of earth’s critical natural resources and play a dynamic role in nourishing life on the earth. It is a mixture of gases, liquids, minerals, organic matter and organisms. This study examined the seasonal variations at monthly interval for the analysis of soil characteristics in Kolasib Town for a period of two years i. e. , November 2016 to October 2018. A total of six sampling sites were prudently chosen and the monthly data were computed on seasonal basis. The soil samples were analysed for pH, bulk density, moisture content, organic carbon, total nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. This work aimed to investigate soil properties under different season.

Keywords: Bulk density, seasonal variation, soil quality, solid waste, kolasib
