A study of the micronutrient status of red soils of North Maharashtra and Konkan areas was made at six different locations. The objective of the experiment was to study the status of macro and micronutrients and their correlation with various physiochemical properties. Soil samples were collected at a depth of 0-20cm and analyzed for electrical conductivity, pH, Iron, Copper, Zinc, Manganese. The dielectric constant of these samples is also measured at X-band microwave frequency (10.5GHz) using waveguide cell method at TE10 mode. The textural analysis as %sand, %silt and %clay of six red soil samples and their correlation with dielectric constant and electrical conductivity are also reported. The textures of these samples are sandy loam, sandy clay loam, loam and sandy. The values of pH indicated that some of the soils are alkaline and some are acidic in nature. The soil analysis indicated that some of the samples have moderate amount of nitrogen, phosphorus (S1-S6) and found to be deficient in phosphorus. All samples were containing moderate amount of available micronutrients.
