South Africa - South Africa - Soils: South Africa contains three major soil regions. 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.

Ojanuga, A.G., Weathering of biotite in soils of the humid tropical climate. Proc. The experiment was carried out at Ilaju village in the derived savanna area of South Western Nigeria to evaluate the suitability of the soil for long term cassava production in order to extrapolate to similar soils in the region.

Critical nutrient requirement for cassava were collected from past research works. Physical and chemical properties of the soils indicate a relative low bulk density ( – Mg/m 3).

The soils were slightly acidic to neutral with pH (H 2 O) ( – ). CATENA vol. 14, p Braunschweig VEGETATION AND SOILS OF THE SAVANNA ENCLAVES OF URHOBO PLAINS, SOUTH-WESTERN NIGERIA A.O.

Soil Physical Conditions in Nigerian Savannas and Biomass Production The Savannas of Nigeria and Agricultural Production Nigeria is located in the tropical zone (between latitude 4o and 14oN, and longitude 2oE), with a vast area having savanna vegetation (Figure 1).This is a region that isFile Size: KB.

Definition Of Biomes Large biotic communities corresponding to vegetation belts or zones are called biomes. Biomes are described as any large natural terrestrial ecosystem. The type of any biome is largely determined by climatic factors, especially rainfall and temperature.

Thus, regions of the world with similar climates have similar biomes. The local biomes in Nigeria. Chlorine contents of 32 surface soils representing the four savanna zones in Nigeria, the major soil parent materials and the main agricultural fields were examined.

Total chlorine contents varied from to mg kg-1 while the water-soluble chloride varied from to mg kg-1 in all the soils. Total Cl and water-soluble Cl- did not vary by either ecological zones or by soil parent Author: B.A.
