Midlands Soils of Red Sandy Soils in Karnataka

1. Midlands soils of red sandy soils occur on gently sloping midlands in gneissic complex region. These are deep to very deep, reddish brown to dark reddish brown, loamy sand to sandy loam or sandy clay loam on the surface with sandy clay to gravelly clay in the sub-surface horizon with well developed argillic (clay rich) horizon. 2. They are neutral to acidic in reaction and low to medium in cation exchange capacity and base saturation with medium to high water holding capacity. 3. T
