Abstract

This work, entitled “agricultural capability and soil fertility in the region of Djebel El ouahch”, describes the work carried out and the results obtained after a soil study carried out in the context of the agro-soil study project in the region of Djebel El Ouahch, Constantine. The purpose of this project was to undertake a study to determine soil resources for use in agricultural development. Soil mapping has shown the existence of three types of soils: calcimagnesic, brown, and isohumic. Dry cultivation was indicated for each type of soil. More than 80% of the soils are suitable for cereal and fodder crops. Tree crops are to be excluded except for rustic trees adopted with fine texture.
