A soil survey was undertaken during October-2016 to April-2017 at the guava bearing orchards of fruit growers in Jhalawar District of Rajasthan state. Soil samples were collected from 14 orchards at different location of Jhalawar district. The studies revealed that mean soil pH values ranged between (6.27 to 8.37) among all the treatments. The minimum electrical conductivity (0.47dSm-1) was estimated in treatment (T4) at location Pirawa, Choti-Sunel,the maximum organic carbon content (0.67 per cent) under treatment (T8) at location Gangdhar, maximum available nitrogen content (163.81kg ha-1) and DTPA extractable zinc content (1.50 mg kg-1) was recorded under treatment (T9) at Manohar- Thana, Sareri, The treatment (T13) at location Khanpur, Chand Kheri possessed maximum available phosphorous content (38.40 kg ha-1) and highest DTPA extractable manganese content (62.78 mg kg-1), however, the treatment (T10) at Manohar- Thana, Javer observed highest value of available potassium content (407.48 kg ha-1).The treatment (T5) at Pachpahar, Khoti recorded maximum value of DTPA extractable iron content (32.56 mg kg-1), while treatment (T14) at Khanpur, Sarola-Kala was found having maximum DTPA extractable copper content (8.95 mg kg-1).
