The experimental area of Farm 2 (2000 [m.sup.2]) has an Entisol Fluvent in transition to an Aridsol soil type, and the intercropping system includes cotton, maize, bean, sesame and pigeon pea.
The collection was carried out in the 0-30 cm layer, in a soil classified as Neossolo Fluvico (Fluvent), according to EMBRAPA (2013).
The soil used in the experiment was obtained from a land that was previously used as citrus orchard in Bogacay section of Antalya located in the Mediterranean region of Turkey and taxonomically determined to be fluvent class.
The objective of this work was to evaluate the changes in the chemical properties of a "Neossolo Fluvico Eutrofco" (Fluvent - American Soil Taxonomy) and okra production using organic fertilization with and without mulching, and irrigation depths.
The soil in the area was predominantly described as Fluvent Entisol, with 751.32, 169.13 and 79.55 g [kg.sup.-1] of sand, silt and clay, respectively.
The soils of the studied fields were entisols, and they were classified as Fluvent and Orthent at the suborder level, following the Soil Survey Staff [18].
