Abstract: A Survey was carried out to study available nutrient status of apple orchard soils of south Kashmir. Twenty orchards with uniform age and vigour were selected and surveyed (simple random survey) for the purpose of collection of soil samples. The samples were processed and analyzed for different nutrients. The mean available iron, manganese, zinc, copper, content of surface soils was 56.77, 42.43, 1.12, 2.27 ppm, respectively and in sub-surface soils of 51.30, 33.34, 0.89 and 1.48 ppm, respectively. Further it was observed that majority of soils were high in available iron, manganese, low to high in available zinc and medium to high in available copper.
