The present investigation was carried out to study the status of micronutrient cation in soils of Sabarkantha district of Gujarat. Total 320 representative surface soil samples (fourty soil samples from each taluka) were collected from farmers’ fields during April-2016. Soil samples were collected and analysed for some chemical properties and status of available micronutrient cationviz., Zn, Fe, Mn and Cu in the laboratory. The correlation co-efficient between chemical properties and available nutrients were worked out. The study revealed that the soils are slightly neutral to mildly alkaline in reaction, safe in limit of electrical conductivity while the low in organic carbon content. The status of available Fe and Zn was medium while status of available Mn and Cu was high. The data indicates that pH showed significantly negative correlation with available Fe, Mn and Zn content.
Key words: DTPA-extractable Micronutrients, pH, OC, EC.
