Abstract
More than ten different soil classification systems have been proposed (Fitzpatrick, 1978), some of which are already in use in various parts of the world. That there is such a large number of classification schemes is an indication of lack of international agreement on the classification of soils. This is partly due to lack of sufficient information about many soils of the world, and also due to the different aims of classification. Basic to any classification is the objective selection of diagnostic criteria that will ensure a "satisfactory" differentiation between individuals such that the differences within a group are minimized while differences between groups are maximized.
