The soil is the most important constituent of our farming. For the proper implementation of management practices an understanding of physicochemical parameters of the soil is essential which affect the soil productivity. In the present study, four soil samples were collected from four sites of a farmland in Wadhona village, Arvi tehsil of Wardha district (Maharashtra state) for analysis. The micronutrients (Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu) and physicochemical parameters of the soil like Bulk density, water holding capacity, pH, Electric conductivity (EC), Organic carbon, N, P, K, Ca, Mg were analysed. There was a minor variation in the nutrients and parameters of the soil samples. The results revealed that, suitable level of organic manure, phosphate fertilizers, and gypsum can be used to increase the crop yield. However, excess use of chemical fertilizers may decline crop productivity. This information helps the farmer to manage the problems related to the soil nutrients, micronutrients and the amount of fertilizers to be added to increase the crop yield.
