These soils can be reclaimed if leaching is facilitated during monsoon months and capillary upflow is prevented during the remaining months. of study site soils decreased by 3 to 5% at 0- to. confines of East Pakistan.^ They had to attempt to control flooding where 90 per cent of the annual river flow entered East Pakistan from catchments outside their border, from areas, over which they had no control and very little data In the sandy deltaic soil of East Pakistan. Pakistan live in farm villages and 46 million depend on 39 million cropped acres for food and fibre. Nature of the Project: The irrigation system of West Pakistan is now being undermined by the twin menace of waterlogging and salinity. The diseases of the soil if un-remedied are of a magnitude to have serious implications for the. Reclamation duration has been typically used to study SOC dynamics in coastal reclaimed lands. Some studies have revealed remarkable impacts of reclamation duration on SOC dynamics (Cheng et al.

Government of the Gold Coast/Ghana Principal Agricultural Officer, (Head of Soil & Land Use Survey Division) Senior Soil Scientist, (Head of Soil & Land Use Survey Dept) Soil Surveyor, Soil & Land Use Survey Dept.   These findings suggest that reclamation had a larger impact on salt content than soil pH in this study area. In addition, the average soil pH in reclaimed land in Eastern Asia is (Li et al., a, Li et al., b), and in this study area, the average soil pH was (RP55). This can be explained by reclamation site differences and the. marine coastal environment of Pakistan. DESCRIPTION OF STUDY AREA akistan has a coastline of km, bordering the Arabian Sea. It extends from the border of India near Rann of Katch in the South-East to the border of Iran near Jiawani in the North-West (Figure - 1). The Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) is about , sq km. On the basis of its. coastal areas of the Equatorial and Tropical regions. In Malaya, rubber plantations have proved a wonderful success. Q No.9Write a note on cultivation in Pakistan. Answer: CULTIVATION IN PAKISTAN. Pakistan still adheres to the traditional methods of agriculture. Around 70 per cent of our population lives on agriculture.

A special case of soil homogenization in intertidal saline or brackish coastal areas,is the burrowing activity of a multitude of small crabs. Even in the absence of vegetation, the crabs intensively mix the topsoil as long as the surface is kept wet by daily tidal flooding (parts of Borium series mapped in Thatta East). Crop cultivation on problem soils in Pakistan - Soil serves as a medium for plant growth and development. However, raising crops on problem soils such as water logged, salt affected, wind and water eroded is a matter of great concern. Water logging is a state of soil when water table reaches in the root zone or rises to such an extent that. Other extensive areas reclaimed from a desert or near-desert status by irrigation are found in Israel, Egypt and other countries of the Middle East, India, Mexico, Peru, Russia, and tion of arid lands has been practised in the Middle East for thousands of years and extensive irrigation projects were developed in what is now southwestern United States by American Indians long before.   PAKISTAN STUDIES Search Box. Tuesday, 15 May Soil and Basic Types of Soil The soil of Pakistan may be classified according to the regional basis. They extent from Hyderabad to the south coastal area. Most of the soils is clay and developed under floodwater. Rice is cultivated in the major part of these soils.
