Land resources inventory and suitability assessment of Morogoro Urban District was carried out to asses the potentials and constraints of the various land units for the production of smallholder.

It is undertaken in priority areas like watershed development projects, village level planning, etc which can be obtained by mapping of all the existing land resources like soils, climate, minerals and rocks, ground water, vegetation, crops, land use pattern, infra structure, marketing facilities, etc.

Land Resource Inventory Data The Land Resource Inventory is recorded in the form of a code for each mapped unit: The code is enclosed by a boundary (polygon), which indicates that the information mapped is similar throughout that area (within the limitations imposed by the scale of mapping).

A new inventory area is mapped where any one factor changes. Land Use Capability (LUC) assessments. LUC assessments rate the ability of each polygon to sustain agricultural and forestry production, based on an assessment of the inventory factors above, climate, the effects of past land use, and the potential for erosion.

The NZLRI covers the country in 11 regions. Concepts of land suitability evaluation: According to FAO (), land evaluation (LE) is the assessment of land performance when used for a specified purpose, involving the execution and interpretation of surveys and studies of land forms, soils, vegetation, climate and other aspects in.

Reliable inventory and monitoring data are difficult to obtain in rangeland situations, which are characterized by extensive areas and considerable spatial and temporal in attributes. which accounts for per cent and class D accounting per cent of the total area.

As per the Land Irrigability Class, Majority of the area i.e per cent comes under Land Irrigability class 4 followed by class comprising an area of per cent and class 3 accounting per cent of the total area.

Land suitability maps are very useful in the development of planning options. They can be used to identify the solution space for future development. The association of spatial optimization models with GIS can help to formulate and develop planning options which try to maximize or minimize some objective functions.

Together, these resources provide the ecosystem services that provide better quality to human life. Depending upon the land situation the farm has been divided into 4 categories of landforms viz.

medium land, moderately low land, low land and extremely low land.
