Abstract: The information about determining the soil fertility status is very important for assessment and development of soil through soil survey of an area. The soil survey was conducted in the Kokarda micro watershed to carry out the macro and micro nutrients status of the soil. All the soils are being low to medium in N availability. The highest available phosphorous was observed in the surface horizon and decreased regularly with the depth. Whereas, the available potassium status of soil were observed low to medium in the range of 84.63 to 689.47 kg ha-1 except in pedon 2 which was 84.63 kg ha-1 and indicating good availability of potassium to the crops. The exchangeable Ca was dominant followed by Mg, Na and K, respectively. The extractable iron, manganese and copper status was found to be high to adequate in the soils of summit crests and shoulder slopes as compared to main valley side-slopes. The Cu content in the soil ranges from 3.70 to 9.63 mg kg-1 in the surface soils. The DTPA-Zn and Cu in all cases were higher in the surface layer and decreased with the depths.
