The study was conducted to know the fertility status of soils of Shivamogga district. The soil samples which were analyzed at Krishi vigyana Kendra, Shivamogga during 2018-19 and 2019-20 subjected for primary and micronutrient characterization. Soil characterization revealed that soil samples were slightly acidic to neutral in reaction with low soluble salts. The available nitrogen and potassium were low to medium in range. The available phosphorus was higher in nature. Among micro nutrients except Zinc other nutrients like Copper, Iron and Manganese were sufficient in nature.

Keywords: Soil Fertility, Major nutrients, Micro-nutrients.
