Plains (nearly level) and upland (very gentle sloping) topography, affected by erosion and moisture stress, is the unique feature of Banaganapalle region. Soils developed from dolomite and granite-gneiss parent material under varying land use were studied for their morphological characteristics, physical and physico-chemical properties. These soils were slightly alkaline to strongly alkaline in reaction, non-saline, deep to very deep in depth. Soils were low to medium in available nitrogen, medium to high in available phosphorus, low to high in available potassium and high in available sulphur. The DTPA extractable Zn and Fe were deficient whereas DTPA extractable Cu and Mn were sufficient. All the soils of the study area fall under agricultural land with land capability classes ranging from II to IV. Further, the lands have limitations of slope and erosion. Soil productivity and productivity potentiality increased from plains to upland topography. Soil productivity class ranged from extremely poor or nil (13.38) to good (45.90) while the potential productivity of soil class ranged from Average (29.16) to excellent (90.00).The coefficient of improvement (Ci) varied from 1.85 to 3.92 indicating the implementation of judicious soil and water management practices suggested for their sustainable management of Banaganapalle mandal.
