The research finding was done on Soil Health of Jasra Block of Prayagraj District of Uttar Pradesh in 2020. Nine sampling points in different villages were selected for the analysis. Soil samples were collected at depths of 0-15, 15-30 and 30-45 cm. The study revealed that in Jasra Block. Chemical properties of Soil pH value ranged from 7.05 to 7.69 and the highest value was recorded in village Ghurpur (V4) and lowest in village Amreha (V₁). The Electrical conductivity ranged from 0.19 to 0.45 ds m-1 most of the crops were suitable for cultivation. The value of Organic Carbon (%) varied from 0.43 to 0.56%, Nitrogen content was found from 319.397 kg ha-1 to 446.545 kg ha-1, phosphorus content from 19.333 kg ha-1 to 48.333 kg ha-1, Potassium content of from 214.587 kg ha-1 to 408.227 kg ha-1, Sulphur content from 0.288 ppm to 0.396 ppm, Copper availability ranged from 0.242 ppm to 0.860 ppm and Zinc availability ranged from 0.222 ppm to 0.896 ppm. During the course of investigation responded appropriate chemical properties of soil Jasra Block villages Ghurpur and Manpur have more fertile soil which gives higher yields of crops as compare to other villages. Most of the farmers cultivate of paddy, wheat, maize, millet, pulses, potato, sugarcane etc and advice to adopt suitable management practices and provide proper nutrition to soil health.
