The Baramati Tehsil is an eastern belt of Pune district with a rolling topography and the low hills sinking slowly in to the plains with relatively broader valleys. Therefore, the physiography of the tahsil has given rise to two major characteristic land forms namely; (1) the plateau and (2) the plains. The soil of the study area is mainly derived from the Deccan basalts.[5] They are generally fertile except in hilly region. The main types of soil found in study area are black, brownish and gray or white. The soil along the Nira River area is black in colour, fine texture and fertile. The main crop in the Nira River side area is sugarcane. As we approach towards the plateau area the soil graded into coarse textured grayish to white coloured calcrete rich soil.
