The  research  was  carried  out  to  study  the  distribution  of  some  macro  nutrients  and  chemical Properties  in  some  semi–arid  soils  of  Borno  state.  Three  composite  soil  samples  were  collected  at different  locations  at  depth  of  0-20  cm  which  were  analysed  for  some  macro  nutrients  and  chemical properties.  University  of  Maiduguri  (Unimaid)  soil  is  slightly  acidic  to  neutral  in  reaction,    low  in electrical  conductivity  (EC),  high  base  saturation,  low  in  percent  organic  carbon,  moderate  in calcium,  high  in  magnesium,  low  in  potassium,  high  in  sodium,  low  in  available  phosphorus.  Dalori soils  were  neutral  in  reaction,  low  in  EC,  high  base  saturation  low  in  percent  organic  carbon,  low  in calcium,  high  in  magnesium,  low  in  potassium,  high  in  sodium,  low  in  available  phosphorus. Gongulong  soil  was  moderately  acidic  in  reaction,  moderate  in  EC,  high  base  saturation,  moderate in  percent  organic  carbon,  high  in  calcium,  very  high  in  magnesium,  moderate  in  potassium,  high  in sodium, low  in  available  phosphorus.
