Sohail Jamil Qureshi, Rizwana A. Qureshi, Muhammad Yousuf and M. Rizwan

A study was conducted to investigate the organic matter status of Tehsil Gujar Khan of district Rawalpindi. Forty eight composite soil samples were collected from different sites of Tehsil. These samples were analyzed for organic matter. Organic matter was deficient or poor <0.86% in all the soil samples analyzed. The maximum organic matter of 0.8% were recorded at Bardiana site and minimum organic matter of 0.25% were observed at Gulliana site. The average maximum organic matter of 0.6% were observed at Bardiana and Daultala sites in the Tehsil. The low organic matter at most of the sites may be due to eroded nature of soils in this area. Fertilizer recommendations were advised to farmers according to soil condition and organic matter status of the soil.
