These include changing of the shifting Maya system to a settled agriculture by the provision of fodder (e.g. sugar cane, especially for the dry period in certain areas), to encourage stock raising.-M.H.

Uruguay Reconnaissance soil mapping was published at million scale (MAP-DSF, ), but the original information is at , scale. This soil inventory transformed to , scale was used to develop a system of land taxing based on soil productivity, officially know as CONEAT (MGAP, ). The map units at this level are. Preliminary soil surveys since have covered much of Sabah. Thomas and Allen () compiled all available data to in a soil map of the State. They used 23 mapping units from a combination of 18 basic soil groups of which the most important were: Lithosols, red/yellow latosols and podsolics: 41 %. Mahogany Survey. The primary objective of this project is to survey out the mahogany plantation areas in the various areas in Fiji and in the process, also demarcates the various Mataqali land boundaries within its environments. Phase 1 of the Project is the survey of Galoa, Naboutini and Nukurua plantations which has commenced in   2. Method – presenting the approach. The approach presented provides a framework which builds on recognised and proven soil survey tools, namely conceptual soil toposequence models and special-purpose soil classifications,, but developed to address current decision maker process requires an experienced soil surveyor to acquire and interpret conventional soil .

This paper presents one way of describing such intricacy‐by a graph of variance against area sampled‐and an exploratory attempt to determine its form for OM, N, coarse and fine sand, silt, clay, gravel, available P and K, CEC, exch.

The majority of Antiguan soils consist of highly siliceous intractable clays suffering from seasonal waterlogging. One of the most distinctive features is the distribution of manganese dioxide which is accumulated in the surface humus horizon and occurs again in the upper part of the parent material.
