Land evaluation of some Alfisols in toposequence affected by sodiumization

Journal of the Indian Society of Soil Science 43(1): 112-116

Land evaluation of some Alfisols in toposequence affected by sodiumization

Three pedons located each in two toposequences in Bihar, India, were characterized for land evaluation following ratings based on the Storie Index, land use capability and soil and land irrigability classifications. The productivity and potential productivity ratings were also computed to evaluate the coefficient of improvement.
