Lateritic soil is formed after continuous weathering and leaching of humus and organic substances, and devoid of silicates and thus form aluminum and iron rich complex.
Laterite Soil is the formation of iron and aluminium rich surface in hot tropical areas due to continuous weathering of the parent rock. It is commonly known as oxisol, latosol, ferallitic soil in soil sciences.
Iron rich soil.
Laterites are formed by the decomposition of many kinds of rocks in especially well-drained ares like tropical rainforests.Abundant oxygan, water and warmth leach most water-soluble minerals from particles of parent rock and leave a non-soluble residue enriched in hydroxides of aluminium, iron, magnesium, nickel and titanium.
