Abstract:

A study was undertaken to evaluate eight soil series belonging to Kabirabad 2 micro-watershed in Bidar district in Northern Eastern Transition Zone of Karnataka State for sustainable land use planning. Seven soil series were tentatively identified and mapped into eight mapping units using GIS technique. These mapping units were grouped into land capability class II and VI with limitations of erosion, drainage and physico-chemical properties. Soil-site suitability evaluation lowland and midland were moderately suitable (S2) for cultivation of field crops like sorghum, red gram, green gram, bengal gram, black gram and soybean with moderate limitations of drainage and fertility while upland area were marginally suitable (S3) for cultivation of these crops. Whereas, horticulture crops like mango, guava, sapota, custard apple and lime were not suitable (N) in upland because of sever limitation of depth, whereas, in low land and mid land these crops were moderately suitable (S2) with moderate limitations of rooting depth and texture.
