About Soil & Land Use Survey Of India Recruitment

About Soil & Land Use Survey Of India

Soil & Land Use Survey of India (SLUSI), earlier All India Soil & Land Use Survey (AISLUS) established in 1958, is a subordinate office of the Department of Agriculture, Cooperation & Farmers Welfare, Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare. The foundation of the national level soil surveys in India was laid in 1953 when the Government of India invited Dr. F. F. Rickens, Soil Specialist from USA to advice on organizing soil survey programmes in the country. Subsequently in 1955, the All India Soil Survey Scheme was initiated under the Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi to carry out reconnaissance soil surveys in the country. Four Regional Centres designated as Alluvial Soil Region, Black Soil Region, Red & Lateritic Soil Region- I and Red & Lateritic Soil Region- II were established at Delhi, Nagpur, Calcutta and Bangalore, respectively. In the year 1958, the Scheme was enlarged by integrating land use survey scheme of the Central Soil Conservation Board of the Department of Agriculture for conducting detailed soil surveys in RVP catchment areas to provide detailed information on soil and land characteristics for planning and execution of effective soil conservation measures. Thus, the original Scheme was renamed as All India Soil & Land Use Survey (AISLUS) in 1958 and its responsibilities were enlarged to cover detailed soil surveys for soil conservation activities.
