This study was aimed at determining chemical and physical properties and classifying soils of Amik Plain. The study revealed presence of 29 soil series in Amik Plain. Soils determined were classified as Entisol, Vertisol, Inceptisol, Alfisol and Mollisol according to Soil Taxonomy. Soil Organic Matter (SOM) for a depth of the upper two horizons ranged from 0.6 to 3.9% except for SOM-rich histic epipedon (20-22%). Bulk Density (BD) of the soils varied between 0.68-1.58 g cm-3. High clay content of the soils ranging from 87.3 to 21.9% for the entire horizons causes poor drainage conditions in about 70% of the Amik Plain. Sustainability of prime farmlands of the Amik Plain can be ensured by best management practices such as no-till and/or reduced-till, residue conservation, windbreaks, rotational cultivation, ecologically suitable crop selection, integrated pest management and intercropping.
