An investigation entitled, “Fertility status of Soil from Kal Amba Command area of Konkan region of Maharashtra State” was conducted to study the physico-chemical properties and primary nutrients in the soil from Kal Amba Command area. A total of 320 soil samples from sixty-four villages of Mangaon and Roha tehsil of Raigad district were collected randomly and were analyzed for the soil properties viz., soil reaction (pH), Electrical Conductivity, Organic Carbon, Available N, Available P2O5 and Available K2O by following standard analytical methods. The analytical work was carried out in the research laboratory of the Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, College of Agriculture, Dapoli. The data revealed that the soils are mildly acidic to neutral in reaction with normal electrical conductivity. The organic carbon, available nitrogen, available phosphorous and available potassium are found to vary.
