Among the various Sub-catchments in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the Namblan Sub-catchment of Jhelum basin has not been studied in view of the nutrient status of the soils. Based on variations in vegetation, altitude, land use and soil heterogeneity six representative soil profiles were exposed and studied for their depth wise distribution of Nutrient. Soil samples collected thereof, were analyzed for various macro and micro nutrients. While as the increasing trend was followed by the macro-nutrients and micro nutrients. The contents of nitrogen and potassium were in the range of 231.43 to 585.38 and 210.43 to 572.45 kg ha-1 with the mean values of 376.41 and 371.87 kg ha-1, respectively. Whereas phosphorus and sulphur ranged from 15.95 to 24.86 and 13.42 to 22.67 kg ha-1 with a mean value of 20.60 and 18.83 kg ha-1, the content of Zn and Cu were in the range of 0.88 to 2.34 mg kg-1 and 0.97 to 2.66 mg kg-1 with a mean value of 1.50 to 1.69 mg kg-1, respectively. Whereas, iron and manganese contents were in the range of 18.45 to 42.26 mg kg-1 and 15.12 to 40.06 mg kg-1 with a mean value of 31.10 and 28.28 mg kg-1 respectively. The contents varied from medium to high and also decreased with the depth.
