Soil is a dominant factor of the land mainly through its effect on biomass production (Gessler et al., , Brunner, ).It covers land as a continuum having properties that vary enormously and continuously with depth and with horizontal distances (Gessler et al., ).But this variation is not random i.e. at any given location on the landscape; there is a particular soil Cited by: 4.

East of approximately longitude 25° E, soils have formed under wet summer and dry winter conditions; the more-important soil types there are laterite (red, leached, iron-bearing soil), unleached subtropical soils, and gleylike (i.e., bluish gray, sticky, and compact) podzolic soils (highly leached soils that.

India - India - Black soils: Among the in situ soils of India, the black soils found in the lava-covered areas are the most conspicuous. Those soils are often referred to as regur but are popularly known as “black cotton soils,” since cotton has been the most common traditional crop in areas where they are found.

Black soils are derivatives of trap lava and are spread mostly across.This module on Geography is one of a series of Geography books. It’s intended for learners in the 6th grade.
