Evaluation of Productivity Potentials of Soils of the Gubi Soil Series

N. Voncir , S. Mustapha , A.A. Amba and T. Kparmwang

Abstract:
Six soils subgroups; two each from Alfisols, Inceptisols and Entisols in the Gubi soil series of Bauchi State were evaluated for their productivity potential using soil site characteristics and physicochemical properties. Ratings and grades for these soil characteristics were allotted and their means used for comparison. The result of the land evaluation grading was observed to ranged from A to E i.e., Extremely high productivity potential (Oxyaquic Ustifluvent, profile 02T2/02T3) to moderately low productivity potential (Typic Ustropept and Ustic Dystropept). The grading is highly correlated with the soil subgroups and is recommended for assessing productivity potential of soils under defined climate and management practice.
