Soil is an important natural resource and plays a crucial role in maintaining environmental balance. Regarding yield of the crops and growth regulation fertility of soil is most important But today’s scenario of agriculture farming in India is not care about it. Without any analysis farmer used unwanted and abundant quantity of fertilizer and water, both results reduce fertility of soil. For sustainable agriculture development and production, analyse the chemical composition, micronutrient and microfauna from soil is must.
The paper is communicated with the chemical composition of soil from selected location of Godavari basin of Jalna (India). The composition of soil shows as follows pH ranges from 8.3- 8.9, E.C. 0.24-0.38, Organic carbon 0.50-0.93, P2O5  51-83, K2O 680-901, Ca 32.3-40, Mg 11.6-24.0, Na 110-125 and CaCo3 10.7-15.4.
The above nine parameters plays an important role about soil fertility and crop yield. But in this region farmer randomly prefer only soybean and cotton farming. From study area some fields are not good for soybean hence this study helps to farmer for their proper crop choice.

Key words: Chemical composition, Soil fertility and Godavari Basin.
