Abstract: A study was undertaken in 2015 to determine the characteristics of the soil found in the vegetable garden perimeter situated in the Marcory Municipal High School, where several vegetable cultivators are farming, The objective of this study was to identify the causes of production related issues, the nature of the soils and irrigation waters that are responsible for lower output on this perimeter. Soil salinity, temporary hydromorphy, mixtures with the lagoon, excessive use of droppings and quality of irrigation water all contributed not only to lower outputs but also with poor quality products.
Keywords: Soil characterization, salinization, Marcory, hydromorphy, quality of products
