Abstract:

Pannur North-3 micro-watershed area of Manvi taluk, Raichur district, Karnataka, was studied for their land capability and crop suitability. Land capability subclasses in the study area were III and IV with limitations of texture, drainage, fertility and topography. Among all the five mapping units, HSRmB2, YADmC (A)1 and PNUmC2 were classified under capability class III and most of the crops like cotton, pigeonpea, greengram, sorghum, pearl millet and guava are moderately suitable. On other hand stream bank mapping units were classified into IV land capability class due to severe limitation of erosion. Majority of the crops were moderately to marginally suitable and few were currently and potentially unsuitable.


Keywords: Land capability, Mapping units, Crop suitability.
