This study on soil fertility status and to assess the nutrient indices of associated soils of selected villages in the Jalgaon district of Maharashtra was conducted during 2018-19. The villages under study were, Savda, Nimbol and Vitve, Raver tahsil, Jalgaon district, Maharashtra. A total of 150 surface soil samples (0-20 cm) were collected, which includes 50 samples from each village. The soils were neutral to slightly alkaline in reaction with no salinity hazards. Low to High in organic carbon (0.15 to 0.93 %), very low in available nitrogen (37.63-263.4 kg ha-1), medium to high in phosphorus (16.0 to 35.8 kg ha-1), medium to high in potassium (201.0 to 392.0 kg ha-1) and low to medium in sulphur (3.19. to 12.0 mg kg-1). The soils is low in DTPA-extractable iron (0.17 to 0.99 mg kg-1), low to high in copper (0.10 to 2.95 mg kg-1), low to medium manganese (1.03 to 4.51 mg kg-1), low to high in zinc (0.1 to 0.92 mg kg-1), low in boron (0.11 to 1.22 mg kg-1) as per three-tier system of nutrient index given by Ramamoorthy and Bajaj (1969).
