The present study was conducted to assess the physico-chemical properties and available N, P, K status of soil of Alwar district, Rajasthan using standard laboratory procedure. Soil samples were collected from three blocks (Mundawar, Behror , Neemarana) of the Alwar district from two depth viz. 0-15 cm and 15-30 cm. Nine sampling points in different villages were selected for the analysis of pH, electrical conducitivity (EC), Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Soil texture i.e sand, silt and clay % in soil, Water holding capacity, Percent pore space in soil. Results of the study indicated that pH ranges from 7.6 to 8.4. The EC ranges from 0.22 to 0.98 dSm-1.The Nitrogen ranges from 87.5 to 184.1 Kg ha-1.The Phosphorus ranges from 25 to 39Kg ha-1.The Potassium ranges from 169 to 298 Kg ha-1.The sand, silt and clay ranges were from 85.2 - 94.6 %, 1.3 – 8.3 % and 4.1-9.0 % respectively. The soil texture varied from Fine sand to Loamy sand. Range of water holding capacity from 42.42 % to 62.5 % and percent pore space 37.86 to 58.9 including mean highest percent pore space 55.87 % and the lowest percent space 42.35 %

Keywords: Physico-chemical properties, Alwar district, Soil and macronutrient status
