This study aims to assess the effects of land use type on the properties of soil in this area. This study also aims to investigate the effects of long term cultivation on soil properties in the area. Design/methodology/approach: This study uses the soil samples from the study area, which were subjected to laboratory analysis to obtain the data of the physical, morphological and chemical properties of the soil in the area. The obtained data was processed through analysis of variance. Findings: The results of this study indicate that the soil morphology of the internal content of the land used generally appears to be very clear. It was also observed that sand dominated the soil in both the cultivated and fallowed land area of the studied pedons. The percentage base saturation mean indicates that the cultivated and fallowed land use is high and a bit acidic and the soil taxonomy shows that the soil in the area is Typic Kandiuustalfs of the order of Afisols

Keywords : Land-use, Soil, Physical properties, Chemical properties, Morphological properties, Soil taxonomy, Pedons.
