Soil Data was collected from detailed soil survey from pits at 10000 scales. Soil morphological characteristics and properties such as texture, structure, consistency, mottles, porosity, compactness, pH, color, slope and drainage were analyzed in each pit. Texture (sand, silt, clay %), pH, Total N, Available P, Available K, Boron, Zinc and Organic matter were analyzed from physical and chemical analyses of soil samples at soil lab.
