Healthy and balanced nutrition of a country's population as well as its future generations is possible by ensuring sustainable economic development through protecting the environment and biological diversity. In this study, the areas where two different agricultural systems applied were determined and soil samples were taken from 0-30 cm depth and soil analyses were carried out for ecological and agricultural evaluation.It was found that the saturation percentage of the soils varied between 41.80-84.70%, its pH varied between 7.27-8.19, the total amount of CaCO3 varied between 2.55-21.24%, total salinity ratio 0.003-0.040%, organic matter content varied between 1.25-3.86%, the amount of beneficial P2O5 varied between 1.92-9.00 kg da(-1) and the amount of available K2O was found so high. In the study, it was concluded that the application of phosphorus and potassium fertilizer should be taken into account since the P2O5 level is high in irrigated soils and the soils are clay loam and the amount of K2O is at an adequate level in both cultivated soils.
