The present study was conducted during the year 2015-2016 at Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, College of Agriculture, Dhule with aim to know the fertility status of soils of Agriculture College Farm, Nandurbar. The soils were collected and analyzed as per standard procedure for assessing chemical properties and available nutrient status. The pH of soil varied from 6.80 to 7.90, while, EC varied from 0.08 to 0.89 dSm-1. The organic carbon and calcium carbonate content in soil were varied from 3.7 to 9.9 g kg-1 and 0.5 to 12.50 per cent, respectively. The available nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium ranged from 125 to 238, 7.49 to 32.42 and 336 to 459 kg ha-1, respectively. Soils of Agriculture College farm, Nandurbar were very low to low in available nitrogen, low to high in available phosphorus and very high in available potassium. The exchangeable calcium and magnesium and available sulphur were ranged from 20.30 to 32.60, 11.40 to 18.20 cmol (p+) kg-1 and 11.48 to 27.59 mg kg-1, respectively. The 100 per cent soils were sufficient in exchangeable calcium, magnesium and in available sulphur.
