To meet the increasing requirement of ever increasing population the judicious use of available natural resources with respect to its potential of supply of nutrient and elements is soil which vital natural resource. In the current scenerio the study of soil fertility status with physico chemical properties has increased markedly because deficiency of major and micronutrient occurs frequently which might be happened due to continuous and intensive multiple cropping with the use of high yielding cultivars which may have higher demand for nutrient also use of fertilizer that have high analysis fertilizer with small amount of macro and micronutrient contamination fertilizer e.g. animal manures ,crop residues ,compost also use of soils that are inherently low in nutrient reserves and induced natural and anthropogenic factors which are limited to supply the adequate plant nutrient and turns nutrient imbalance. Hence, Evaluation of Soil Fertility Status. In Hot Semi-Arid Eco-Region of Beed District, Maharastra (India) research was undertaken to know the need of judging fertility status of Beed area. An investigation was carried out for 440 representative soil samples selected from 11 tahsils of Beed district of Maharashtra state in 2019 -2020 by using method of Yadav and Khanna for collection of soil sample. Soil samples were tested for physico chemical properties i.e. pH, Ec (electrical conductivity). O.C, (Organic carbon), CaCO3 (calcium carbonate), macro nutrients N, P, K, and S and micro nutrient Zn, Fe, Cu, Mn and B. Where the analysed values show pH range upto 7.66 with average values 6.95 -8.78 i.e. slightly neutral to slightly alkaline, conductivity with range 0.35 in average of 0.09-0.99 in suitable ranges of germination, organic carbon ranges 5.25 having average of 1.0- 12.4, calcium carbonate ranges 118.87 while average values 83.2-163.6 some calcarious to non calcareous soils. Macro nutrient as ranges from 142.35, 21.17, 537.72 and 34.27 for Avail. N, P, K and S respectively nitrogen lies in low to medium, phosphorous medium range while potassium in high ranges with sufficient sulphur. From this investigation its seen that at low nutrient status different places of the Beed district also having medium to high mineral contents and at some places, to maintain fertility of soil farmers have to open eye for good land and crop yield.
