The Physio-Chemical Characteristics of Agbor Soils in Delta State and the Implications for Agricultural Development

Abstract

The purpose of this research work is to assess the effective nature of soil in agricultural planning and development within the context of its properties and structure. Six soil profiles was studied with the physical and chemical properties. Samples of soils were collected from the six profiles air dried and sent to the laboratory for analysis using the recommended testing method. All soils parameters both physical and chemical displayed various level of variability in the research work. It was discovered that the soils of the region have agricultural potentials for the production of cocoa, rubber and oil palm as well as food crops
