Three hundred soil samples from ten blocks of Jajpur district, Odisha state were studied for distribution of DTPA extractable. Zn, Cu, Fe and Mn and Boron their relationship with some soil properties. Soil pH, calcium carbonate, organic carbon and particle-size fractions had strong influence on the distribution of these micronutrients. The content of micronutrient increased with the increase in organic carbon and decreased with increase in pH. As per critical limit prescribed for Zn 26 per cent and Boran 73.3 percent of the soil could be rated as deficient in available zinc and boron. Iron, Copper and manganese were found to be adequate.

Keywords: DTPA extractable micronutrients, acidic soil, soil, critical limit deficiency
