Abstract: Electrical properties such as dielectric constant, dielectric loss of soils has been measured at an automated x band microwave set-up in TE10 mode operating at 10 GHz. It is measured for different moisture content. Soil samples are collected from agricultural land of Nasik region. Soil samples were analyzed for physical and chemical properties for the status of available micro nutrients. Correlations between electrical and physical properties of soil samples were reported. It is observed that dielectric constant increases with increase in moisture content slowly up to transition moisture then it increases rapidly with increase in moisture content. Also dielectric loss is directly proportional to the ac microwave conductivity and transition temperature. It has been found that emissivity decreases with increase in moisture content. In the field of remote sensing and agriculture, results obtained are useful.
