Pedogenic factors, especially the varying climate and topography, have caused the formation of various soil orders including Alfisols, Mollisols, Aridisols, Entisols, and Inceptisols. One of the most important of these soil orders is the Mollisols that has a basic role in the production of agricultural products due to the fertility of the soils in this order.
