Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out “Morphological characteristics of tea growing areas in Kishanganj district, Bihar using remote sensing and GIS technologies. The results revealed that most of tea growing soils belong to Entisols order as 7th approximation of soil classification, and taxonomically classified as Aeric fluvaquents, Typic ustipsamments, Typic ustifluvents and Aeric endoaquepts etc. at sub-group level. Whereas, characterisation of soil series level, Harbhita, Khajuria, Khajuri and Soksanand series are major predominating soil series have been identified for tea growing soils in Kishanganj district. The soil reactions were varied from acidic to neutral in reactions. However, no effervescence with dil. HCl have been observed in all horizon, which indicated that there was nil of calcium carbonate content in tea growing soils. The soil colour varied from light Gray, olive colour, and pale-yellow colour have been observed which indicated that low organic carbon content has been observed in tea growing soils.
