In present study, phosphorus fractions in representative agricultural soils belonging to four soil orders Vertisols, Inceptisols, Alfisols and Aridisols. The experiment was conducted at the carry out the investigation a laboratory in the lab of Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), College of Agriculture, Indore. Result revealed that the highest soil pH analysed in Vertisols with the range 7.9 followed by Aridisols range 7.8, Alfisols range 6.6, and low pH found in Inceptisols, which 6.4 soil orders, respectively. The EC was existed as normal in all the orders < 1 dS m-1 at 25°C high range Alfisols. The organic carbon content was recorded in different soil orders ranged from 4.6, 1.2, 0.76 to 0.43 g kg-1. The clay ranged from 56, 24.3, 16.97, 7.8, percentage. The available N content in soils varied from 334, 280, 358 to 180 kg ha-1 in different soil orders was significant positively correlated. The available phosphorus content in four soils orders varied from 16.9, 27.45, 14.9 to 6.25 kg ha-1. The available K ranged from 425, 224.4, 546 to 697.2 kg ha-1. The available N, P and K were low to medium in different soil orders. Vertisols and Inceptisols. The correlation studies of different fractions of phosphorus under different rates of phosphorus application showed positive correlation with Ca - P in Vertisols and Aridisols, while Fe-P, Al - P Showed highly significant correlation with Inceptisols and Alfisols, this can be infused that the applied phosphorus fixed as Ca - P in Vertisols while in the case of Alfisols and Inceptisols, the applied phosphorus is fixed as Al-P and Fe-P and Saloid - P did not show much response to different fraction of phosphorus except in Vertisols.

Keywords: Phosphorus fractions, Vertisol, Inceptisol, Alfisol, Aridisols, Ca - P, Fe -P, Al - P, Saloid - P
