Soil samples were collected from different villages of Majhwa Block of Mirzapur district. The results showed that the available N, P, K and S content in surface (0-20 cm) soils was higher as compared to sub surface (20-40 cm). The mean content of available N, P, K and S in surface soils (0-20 cm) were 306, 18.4, 229 and 9.8 kg ha-1, whereas, in subsurface soil (20-40 cm) it was 241, 20.4, 189 and 8.57 kg ha-1, respectively. The mean DTPA extractable Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn and hot water soluble B content followed the similar pattern of distribution in the surface and subsurface soils. The maximum Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn and B content in top soils was 15.2, 6.2, 3.11, 2.63 and 1.47 mg kg-1, respectively. The mean values of water soluble cations Ca, Mg, Na and K in surface soils (0-20 cm) were 19.3, 9.59, 9.07 and 11.7 m eq L-1, respectively. The available B and Zn content in surface soils and available N and organic carbon content in subsurface soils were positively and significantly correlated.

Keywords: Soil fertility, Micronutrients, Water soluble cations, Majhwa, Mirzapur.
