The soil research study was conducted from three block in Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan for evaluate the soil fertility status of cultivated land of farmers. The Total No. of 120 Soil samples were collected from different cultivated fields (0-15 cm depth) and analyzed for soil properties and macro nutrient fertility status viz. Soil PH, EC, OC, & Available Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potash and Sulphur by standard method. The Soil PH, Electrical Conductivity, Organic carbon of soil samples were found with an average of 7.75, 0.54 dS m-1 & 0.38 % respectively. Available nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potash and Sulphur content of soil samples were reported with a mean value of 213.70 kgha-1, 22.35 kgha-1, 125.57 kgha-1 and 15.34 mgkg-1 respectively. It can be concluded that the soil samples under research study is categorized neutral to slightly alkaline in PH, whereas organic carbon, electrical conductivity, Available N2O, P2O5, and K2O were low to medium range and sulphur content was found in medium range. Hence, various efforts viz. use of biofertilizers, organic manures with balanced chemical fertilizers were suggested for farmers regarding the benefits of improving soil fertility and nutrition status.
Key words: Soil pH, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Soil fertility status
