Abstract: A study was undertaken to evaluate the available zinc status in the soils of Kasdol block under Balodabazar district of Chhattisgarh. The GPS based 1384 soil samples were collected from 52 villages of Kasdol block by stratified multi stage random sampling method. The soil analysis showed the available boron status is sufficient to high; it ranges between 0.80-2.30, 0.60-2.90, 0.60-2.40 and 0.60-2.80 mg kg-1 with mean value of 1.57, 1.44, 1.38 and 1.43 mg kg-1 in Entisols, Inceptisols, Alfisols and Vertisols respectively. The pH and organic carbon ranges 5-7.5, 3.9-8.6, 4.9-8.6, and 4.9-8.8 with mean value of 5.8, 6.38, 6.28 and 6.4; and 0.49; 0.30-0.77, 0.28-0.88, 0.28-0.81, and 0.28-0.85 per cent with mean value of 0.55, 0.45, 0.49 and 0.49 per cent in Entisols, Inceptisols, Alfisols and Vertisols respectively. The electrical conductivity was found under normal range (<1 dSm-1). The non-significant positive relationship of available B with pH and EC and negative correlation with OC was found. The soil fertility map has been prepared based on the result and there is need to correct the deficiencies of available nutrients by applying balanced fertilizer doses.
