Abstract

According to the composition of the superficial layer, 25 different surface types were determined in the field. These surfaces cover 8 soil units of the FAO World Soil Map Classification, which are found with different phases and in different soil associations. On the basis of the pedological results gained by field work, a soil association map (1:500,000) of the area was prepared by 4 steps. Based on this map of Tarfawi, a land suitability map for irrigated agriculture was prepared. It shows the suitability of land for dominant soils and for best soils which occur within soil associations
