Characterization and classification of rice growing soils of rainfed region of West Bengal is having an utmost importance for developing optimal agricultural land use planning. In the context of ever increasing food demand under dwindling agricultural land availability, rainfed areas have got the attention for enhancing food grain production for the national food basket. Hence, in the present study, we made an effort to characterize six rice growing soils placed in six different landform…
