Land resource surveys are our core activity. We maintain a land resource database of the Province for better agriculture production to ensure food security. The other key functions are as under:

  • Identification of soil series at district level 
  • Reconnaissance soil surveys for inventory and planning of land resources
  • Semi-detailed and detailed soil surveys for land use management on request for better agriculture production
  • Thematic mapping (e.g. land use, vegetation, soil etc.)
  • Special purpose mapping (suitability maps)
  • Analysis of physico-chemical properties of soils
  • Collection of different soil profiles (monolith) for in-house briefing about different types of soils and their management
