Abstract: Soil fertility refers to the inherent capacity of a soil to supply essential nutrients to plants in adequate and right proportion for optimum growth, is one of the key component to determine soil productivity. Proper management of soil fertility demands careful identification of constraints of current nutrient deficiencies and monitoring changes in soil fertility to predict its deficiency. These deficiencies need to be alleviated through sound and proven practices of nutrients, water supply to crops and soil management, so as to sustain food production at a reasonable level to ensure continued high productivity in the future. Macronutrients (N, P, K) and micronutrients (Zn, Cu, Fe and Mn) are important soil elements that control its fertility. Keeping in view, One hundred twenty surface soil samples (0-15 cm) were collected from four blocks (Morar, Ghatigoan, Dabra and Bhitarwar) of Gwalior district. Under these, soils of Morar and Ghatigoan blocks belong to Inceptisol and Dabra and Bhitarwar blocks belong to Vertisols, Soils were studied for their status of different available nutrient (N, P, K, S, Zn, Cu, Mn and Fe).
