Fitsume Yemenu, Tadesse Bullulo


Agriculture can only be sustained if soil physico-chemical properties of soils are in a good quality to cultivate crops. Investing the soil physico -chemical aspects of soils are therefore helpful in decision making for productive agriculture. The purpose of this study was to assess and measure the soil physical and chemical status of the land at Agarefa, South East Ethiopia where Weyib river is to be used as source for water for agriculture during the dry seasons. Proper field and standard laboratory procedures were followed to determine the soil physical and chemical properties of the soil in the selected study site. Accordingly, the results have showed that the land has reasonable fertile soil and  can be used for irrigated agriculture
