  • Bhangar is full of kankars and calcareous structures

  • Bhangar is not very fertile

  • The area in northern plains that lies below flood levels is made up of Khadar which is new alluvium soil

  • Khadar is younger alluvium as flood waters deposit new layers every year

  • Khadar is very fertile and ideal for intensive cultivation
