8. Peaty and Marshy soils

  • These types of soils are found in coastal tracts.
  • Accumulation of partly decayed organic matter over several years in the presence of high moisture gives rise to peaty and marshy soils.
  • These are black in colour, heavy and highly acidic.
  • When properly drained and fertilized, these soils produce good crops of rice.
