Soil survey and Crop suitability assessment for Mulberry was carried out using RS and GIS technique. Based on survey, Eighteen mapping units belonged to the land capability class IV with two sub classes viz; IVsf and IVts and seven belongs to land capability class III with three sub classes viz; IIItsf, IIItwsf and IIIts. Having slight to severe limitations of texture, coarse fragments, soil depth, drainage, cation exchange capacity, base saturation and organic carbon. About 276.66 ha (42.73 % of TGA) were highly suitability sub class S1 having none to slight limitations of climate, soil physico-chemical properties. Other mapping units of the study area were assessed to be slightly to marginally suitable for mulberry.
Key words: Mulberry, Land capability, Suitability, Mapping unit.
