Results of this study show that the genesis and formation of paddy soils in this district are predominantly affected by cultivation and management. Four groups of paddy soils were distinguishable: (1) soils developed from lateritic uplands; (2) latosols formed through erosion and deposition processes; (3) soils formed from lateritic erosion materials, but partially mixed with aeolian sands; (4) soils formed mainly from aeolian sands, but partially mixed with lateritic materials.
