The province is dominated by soil complexes which is a combination of different soil types/textures. These are commonly found in the mountainous part of the province. Along the terraces of Magat River, maligaya soil is dominant where most rice lands are located.
The general depth of the soil in the province is mostly moderately deep except those that are developed from ultra-basic rocks, limestone and in areas where rock fragments are dominant.
The hydrological properties are moderate to high water holding capacity except those soils along the river terraces and the sedimentary hills. All upland soils are considered well drained both internally and externally except for clay alluvial plains. Quality of the soils varies from slow to moderately rapid to rapid in upland soils and along the river terraces. Infiltration rate also varies from slow to moderate in all uplands.
The level of soil fertility in Nueva Vizcaya is generally high.
