Abstract:

A detailed study was conducted to assess the land capability and land suitability of Paman kallur-1 micro-watershed. The micro watershed is located in Lingasugur taluk, Raichur district, Karnataka, India, which lies between the latitude and longitude of 76037’ N – 1607’ E and 76039’ N– 1605’ E. Initially, land resource survey was carried out at 1:8000 scale to derive soil phase units based on land surface and profile characters. Four soil series were identified and further mapped into six soil phase units. The soil phase unit “THDhD2g1S1R1” covered maximum area of 137 ha (32.22%) with moderate slope (5-10%) and moderate erosion in Paman kallur-1 micro-watershed. Land capability with subclasses in the study area was IIIes having limitations of soil erosion, texture, soil drainage, soil fertility and topography. Therefore, 97.15 per cent of the study area is suitable for legume and horticultural purposes. Furthur, Soil phase unit wise and with corresponding survey number, crop plan with suitable interventions for field crops, horticultural crops, vegetables, millets and pulses were prepared for the benefit of the farmers.
