Abstract
With a view to classification of the widely varying soils of India, which reflect the variation of geologic structure, climate, and topography of the region, and in the absence of a large-scale soil survey, proposes the use of the soil zone as the highest category, citing four zonal types of soils as examples--"regur" or black soils, red and lateritic soil, alluvial soils, and desert soils.
