Collembolans are novel indicators of soil quality as they are enormously diversified in agricultural soils. However, their abundance is ever dynamic due to the dynamic climatic conditions. In order to ascertain the diversity and relative abundance of Collembola associated with wheat field, soil samples were taken at weekly intervals from selected field of Quarsi village located at Aligarh district of Uttar Pradesh (India). Total 20 samples were taken for the site study during the investigation period and soil microarthropods extracted by using modified Tullgren funnel apparatus. The results of our study showed that, the species diversity of Collembolans mainly consists of individuals belonging to family Entomobryoidae, Isotomidae, Hypogastruridae and Sminthuridae.
