In the present research work, studies on correlation factors of electrical conductivity of soils in India with their physical properties like texture, bulk density and porosity were reported. We collected 29 soil samples from different locations of Karnatakta, Tamilnadu, Uttarakhand and Madhya Pradesh states of India. Soil samples were analyzed for physical parameters. Statistical correlations were obtained between electrical conductivity and different parameters of soil samples. Our results show significant correlations between electrical conductivity and physical parameters of soils. Besides agricultural applications, such studies may find importance in better understanding of soil physics and also for analyzing the satellite data in remote sensing.
