ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The fifteen soil series encountered in the survey of the area covered by the 1:50,000 topographical sheet, Wellington 3318DB are described. The morphological and chemical features as well as distribution and agricultural potential are discussed. The genesis A of the soils and their place in the 7th Approximation is given. The shortcomings of the 7th Approximation encountered are discussed. Within the area, parent material was found to be the major soil forming factor. Differences in parent material resulted in oxisols occuring in an area dominated by argids. Argids are the climatically zonal soils an argillaceous rocks.
