Black calcareous soils of Thailand (Rendzinas or Calciustolls) occupy 500 000 ha and are located mostly on the highlands of central and northern areas of the country. These soils are considered quite fertile, but leaf chlorosis resembling iron deficiency occurs quite commonly in peanuts, although patchy in distribution.
