A field study was carried out in the village Ngoungoumou in the humid forest zone of Cameroon to assess changes in particle size distribution and soil chemical properties in relation to different land-use systems. These strongly acid soils are mainly composed of clay and sand, and are generally devoid of crop nutrients at the benefit of exchangeable Al occupying the nearly entire exchange complex. The major portion of the nutrients is stored in the top-soil, together with the organic matter. Land-use systems significantly affected the clay, the silt and the sand fractions.

Predicting some Agroclimatic Data Using Empirical Models. The lack of climatic data in large areas of Africa is a major drawback in the efficient planning of land resources use. The objective of this study is to fill that gap whenever necessary, by estimating climatic data with empirical models using geographic parameters of the site such as its latitude, longitude, altitude and month of the year. Data from 66 agroclimatological stations were used, covering a region stretching between latitude 2 and 14N, longitude 3 and 23E, and altitude 13 to 1890 m.
