The Land Units mapped as part of this study identify areas of land on the basis of similar geology, slope and soil types.

Mapping was carried out at a 1:100 000 map scale which necessitated some generalisation. Users should exercise caution when interpreting map information as it presents a guide only as to the likely soil types in an area. In any one area soils can vary significantly according to landscape, geology and management. Any agricultural enterprise should be based on a proper on-site assessment of the soil and landscape.
