Soil is an important natural resource on the earth. The soils of pond play a key role in regulating the concentration of nutrient in the pond water and aquatic flora and fauna of an aquatic ecosystem. The present paper deal with the study of physicochemical parameters like pH, specific conductivity, chloride, total alkalinity calcium, magnesium nitrate, sulphate, phosphate sodium and potassium from July 2008 to June 2009 . During the study year fluctuation were observed in various parameters. Investigation results showed that the soli alkaline throughout the study year. The productivity of an ecosystem depends upon the quality of soil. Some parameters were above permissible limit and some below permissible limit which affect the quality and productivity of pond soil.
