Abstract: Twenty representative surface (0-15 cm) soil samples were collected from cultivated farmer’s field of each taluka of Rajkot district viz. Paddhari, Rajkot, Lodhika, Kotda Sangani, Jetpur, Dhoraji, Upleta, Gondal and Jasdan during 2014. The chemical analysis of 200 surface samples indicates that soil were medium in available N and P2O5, whereas high in available S and in available K2O status. Among the DTPA extractable micronutrients, Mn and Cu were found sufficient, whereas the soils were medium in Fe and Zn. The nutrient index values was low for DTPA available Zn (1.48), medium for available N (1.55), available P2O5 (2.01), available S (2.44) and DTPA available Fe (1.57) and high for K2O (2.94), DTPA available Mn (2.84) and DTPA available Cu (2.94) in the soils of Rajkot district.
