Agriculture plays a vital role in the Indian economy. Over 70 per cent of the rural households depend on agriculture. Both humans and animals depend on agriculture for food. Food not only provide us energy but also essential nutrients. So, it’s important that the food we consume should have all nutrients in it. Now the quality of food grown depends on the quality of various factors which govern the growth of crops. Soil is a critical part of successful agriculture and is the original source of the nutrients. The soil is made up of air, water, decayed plant residue, organic matter, and minerals, such as sand, silt, and clay. Increasing soil organic matter typically improves soil health, as this organic matter affects several critical soil functions. Healthy soils are also porous, which allows air and water to move freely through them. This balance ensures a suitable habitat for soil organisms that support growing plants. This study was set-up to determine the key factors affecting soil quality of Nainwa Tehsil of Bundi District. The soil samples were collected and analyzed for specific physical and chemical quality indices. Factors affecting soil quality maintenance in the area according to the findings are natural and man-induced, including agricultural practices in general and deforestation, soil degradation and erosion, as well as biodiversity loss in particular.
