Abstract
The fertility status of these soils is generally good but may be improved further by applying fertilizers containing phosphorus and to some extent nitrogen. The main problems established in these soils regarding arable farming include shallow soil depth and/or rockiness (mapping units Hlb2P, L1b1 P and Llb3P); steepness of the land in scarp areas (mapping units Flb3 and Vlg) and soil drainage condition (mapping unit Vlg) and soil drainage condition (mapping unit Vlg). The last mentioned soil condition (drainage) may not, however, pause a lot of problems to most crops grown in the area as long as rain water does not stagnate/pond in the farm
