AbstractThis study was carried out for the purpose of conducting an evaluation of agricultural lands for wheat and barley crops and monitoring changes in the nature of land use for the studied area located northeast of Nineveh governorate (longitudes 43°04ˉ26˭ and 43°22ˉ23˭ east and latitudes 36° 22ˉ56˭ and 36°34ˉ43˭) Thirteen soil samples were obtained from the study areas for laboratory analysis. Through this information, soil suitability values were found according to its analyzed characteristics in addition to climate characteristics and according to (Sys et al., 1993) standards, which finally came to establish appropriate soil as well as land values for wheat and barley crops. The results indicated that the lands of the region are classified according to their suitability for the production of selected crops into highly suitable lands (S1) for the cultivation of wheat and barley, and constitute (7.70%) of the study samples and suitable lands (S2) for cultivation, and constitute (92.30%) of the study samples, with Considering that the climate factor was not specific for the cultivation of wheat and barley crops.
