Abstract

Purpose China is a fast developing country. In order to more rational use of soil resources, it is necessary to evaluate the functions of soils on the regional level, which can provide a reference to rational land-use planning. Method In this paper, by using the method of TUSEC (Technique for Soil Evaluation and Categorization for Natural and Anthropogenic Soils), with some modifications of the parameters according to the local situation, the soil resource in suburb of Zhengzhou City in China has been evaluated for different functions. Results The evaluation results show that the function of soil as component of water and nutrient cycles is in high levels while the function of wheat production is in the medium level in most of the area. Opposite to the function of transformation, the function of soils as filter and buffer for heavy metals in the southwest is relatively higher than the northeast. Conclusions As urbanization is inevitable, the soil functions should be considered for a sustainable land use.
