Abstract: A study was conducted to assess micronutrient status of soils of Shirol Tehsil of Kolhapur District by GIS technique. 200 soil samples (0-22.5 cm) drawn during 2013 from 39 villages were analyzed for their fertility status and mapped by geographic information system (GIS) technique. The exact locations of soil samples were recorded with the help of GPS. The results indicated that all samples were slightly alkaline to moderately alkaline in soil reaction (7.0-9.0), non-saline (0.06-6.3dS m-1), low to very high in organic carbon (0.30 – 1.29%) and Calcium Carbonates ranged from (1.1-15.1%). Regarding micronutrients, the DTPA extractable Zn and Fe were categorized as very low to medium which ranged from (0.21-4.35 mg Kg-1) and (2.20-9.05 mg Kg-1) respectively. The DTPA extractable Mn was ranged from (0.03-11.51 mg Kg-1) which are categorized as medium to high. The DTPA extractable Cu was ranged from (0.62-27.96 mg Kg-1) which are categorized as moderately high to very high.
