Abstract: A study was undertaken to evaluate the available nutrient status in the soils of Matiya village of Kasdol block under Balodabazar district of Chhattisgarh. The GPS based 94 soil samples were collected by stratified multi stage random sampling method. The soil analysis showed that the pH, electrical conductivity and organic carbon status ranged between 4.9-7.4, 0.08-0.9 dS m-1 and 0.28-0.81% with mean value of 6.27, 0.27 dS m-1, 0.44% respectively. The available nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur status ranges between 99.47-281.84 kg ha-1, 4.75-18.55 kg ha-1, 145.04-585.87 kg ha-1 and 5.04-26.88 kg ha-1 respectively with mean value of 152.80 kg ha-1, 10.40 kg ha-1, 280.49 kg ha-1 and 10.99 kg ha-1 respectively. The available micronutrient as Zinc, Boron, Iron, manganese and Copper status was found 0.56-2.10 mg kg-1, 0.60-2.40 mg kg-1, 2.14-33.62 mg kg-1, 15.02-38.50 mg kg-1 and 0.28-3.12 mg kg-1 respectively with mean value of 0.83 mg kg-1, 1.45 mg kg-1, 21.64 mg kg-1, 32.54 mg kg-1 and 2.22 mg kg-1 respectively. The pH and the electrical conductivity were found under slightly acidic and normal range (< 1 dSm-1) respectively.
