Soil fertility evaluation of an Agricultural field is an important aspect in context of sustainable agricultural production. The macro and micro nutrients govern fertility of soils and control the growth yield of crops. The main aim of this study was to evaluate soil fertility status from Kanchanpur district of Nepal. Sixty seven surface soil (0.5-15 cm) samples were analyzed for various soil fertility parameters like pH, EC, organic matter, available N, P, K, bulk density, particle density and porosity by standard procedure. The pH value ranged from 5.5–6.8 reflecting slightly acidic to neutral nature of soils. E.C. ranges between 0.16–0.40 dSm-1. Organic carbon ranges from 0.96–4.20 %. Hundred percent samples showing high organic carbon status, 55.22% medium and 54.88% high status in available N and most of the soils sample has high status in P, 88.05% samples are high in phosphorous, while 34.32% samples are low, 58.20% medium and 7.46% high in available K. Proper agriculture practices, intensive farming, forest biomass are responsible for soil fertility of soil. Bulk density ranges from 1.31 to 1.40 mg m-3, particle density ranges from 2.25 to 2.40 mg m-3 porosity ranges from 55.1 to 60.8 %. Soil samples are good in status, However to continue fertility status or to overcome from the adverse effect, complementary use of bio-fertilizers, organic manures in appropriate combination of chemical fertilizers were suggested. Awareness camp, rallies, and training program can be arrange for farmer regarding the benefits of balanced use of fertilizers.
