    Default black soil

    Black soil is rich in chemical properties and very suitable for the growth of cotton, jowar, wheat, linseed, ground nut and gram. In horticulture crops Mango, Sapota, Guava and Banana are main fruit crops and vegetables like Peas, Brinjal, Tomato, Green chilli etc. are grown.

    In black soil, there should be proper drainage of water. There are mainly two problems in black soil i.e. water logging and soil salinity.

    Therefore, need is to manage both problems.
