Abstract: Evaluation of soil site suitability is very important for future management practices in particular area. In an area delineated through soil survey and eight typifying pedons were selected for detailed investigation representing major landforms, which are distinctly different from one another in their slope form and composition viz., summit crests, shoulder slopes, escarpments, foot slopes, toe slopes, interfluves slopes and entrenched valley floors. The studied area of soils were alkaline in nature with clayey texture, had isohyperthermic temperature and ustic moisture regimes. The soils are classified as Lithic Ustorthents, Vertic Haplustepts and Typic Haplusterts. Based on degree of limitations the soils are marginally to moderately suitable for leading crops such as cotton, soybean, wheat and sorghum. The soils of main valley side-slopes are highly suitable for cotton, moderately suitable for sorghum, soybean, wheat and marginally suitable for orange.
