Abstract:

The detailed land resource inventory of Karekal-1 micro watershed (781.82 ha) was carried out at 1:8000 scale, under World Bank funded Sujala-III project at Shorapur taluk Yadgir district, Karnataka state, India. Traversing was done using cadastral map, SOI toposheet and IRS Cartosat-I imagery (2.5 m) merged with LISS IV (5.8 m). Physiographic units were identified and initial legend was prepared by studying soils in representative places. Total four series such as Dhoni, Karekal, Nagarabavi, and Teerth (8 mapping units viz., NGBhB2, NGBhB3, TERhB3, TERhB3S1, TERcC3g2S2, KARmB2go and KARmB2g1), LCC were derived viz., IIIewf, IIIewsf, IVef and IVesf. The crop suitability for field crops viz., Cotton, Pigeon pea, Ground nut, Sorghum, Pearl millet, Green gram and Chick pea and horticultural crops viz., Mango, Guava and Sapota were derived based on the soil fertility, climatic regime and land quality. The cadastral map was over laid on LCC and crop suitability to deliver parcel based information.
