The North East region has a great diversity of soil types. This diversity reflects differences in parent material, geology, topography, climate, organic activity and age e.g. degree of weathering.

In the higher rainfall areas of the region, Kurosols and Acidic Dermosols are the most prevalent soils. For agricultural purposes, many of these soils have some chemical and physical limitations e.g. acidity, which require careful management.
