Abstract

Soil is one of the most important natural resources for human welfare.It has been meeting other needs including food, clothing, shelter for a long time. It is a resource vulnerable to decay. Once lost, it is almost impossible to recover. This Hobson's choice resource is currently facing various problems with the improvement of society. Among the eight districts of North Bengal, Darjeeling and Kalimpong are located in the foothills of the Himalayas. The soil here is completely different from other parts of the state. This area is mainly found in hilly soils, forest soils, Old Alluvium and Red soils. Acidity, alkalinity, salinity, degradation, lack of organic matter, dryness, etc. are the main problems of the soil of North Bengal. At present, to solve the soil problem, various plans have been taken in government and local ways
