Soil plays an important role in producing healthy crops. The chemical analysis method for recognising the soil contents for good yield is time consuming and complex. An alternative method using VNIR spectral reflectance of soil can make the task easier. In the present study samples of soil were taken from the state of Maharashtra, India. The ASD field spec 4 spectroradiometer is used to record the spectra of soils. Nine different transformations were performed on spectral reflectance for noise removal. The predictions carried out using correlation show that the first derivative of reflectance, logarithm of reflectance and reciprocal of logarithm of reflectance predicts sensitive wavelengths for SOM. The multiple linear regression models reached the coefficient of determination to 0.92. The optimal wavelengths for SOM were found using analysis of variance technique (ANOVA).
